  • Engage youth and adults in partnerships to develop and implement community strategies that promote healthy lifestyle choices.

The Health Rocks program is implemented at various locations (schools, organizations, and community centers) in Jasper County.  Youth are involved in interactive, hands-on activities and scenarios focusing on three general areas:  All About Me, What Influences Me and Taking it Beyond Me.  The participation rate has increased over the last two months.  Ms. Cathy Morgan reaches over 125 youths every month. “Join 4-H Today” at https://v2.4honline.com
