Featured Focus – 4-H Healthy Lifestyles
4-H healthy lifestyles programs give young people the tools and knowledge they need to eat right, exercise often and navigate the tough choices they often face as they enter adolescence and their teenage years . With increased support for 4-H healthy lifestyles programs, more Michigan youth will learn to make healthy life choices.
4-H healthy lifestyles is at 31 percent of the $500,000 goal. Programs supported include a new career and fitness curriculum, the Molina Teen Health Challenge and several Walmart Youth Voice: Youth Choice grants to expand 4-H health programs in local communities. Read more about the Walmart grant.
