Lead The Legacy- 4-H Training Center Classroom

“To Make The Best Better” is the 4-H motto and a way of life at the Saratoga County 4-H Training Center.  The Center, built in 1980, continues to be a one of a kind entity in Saratoga County and across New York State. As a way to increase the capacity for programming and meet the growing needs of 4-H and the community, an expansion project is essential at this time.

 
On behalf of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County, we respectfully ask that you help LEAD THE LEGACY for the next generation of 4-H youth, by being a sponsor for the installation of a NEW multi-functional facility. This facility will house multimedia classrooms and fully ADA accessible bathrooms with shower units at the Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H Training Center grounds. 

The new facility will encompass 3 classrooms and 3 fully ADA compliant bathrooms, including a family bathroom.  Saratoga County houses the largest 4-H Robotics Program in New York State with over 75 youth participating in the program.  One of these rooms will primarily be the 4-H S.T.E.M. classroom.  This new room will give the program an opportunity to host robotics events with participation from schools and other robotics clubs across the capital region.  It will also provide an area for safe storage of expensive equipment and allow expansion efforts into drone technology, reusable energy, and much more. 

The Training Center Fund Drive has been initiated to raise $500,000 for this project. Through the generosity of local businesses including Stewarts and the Dake Foundation and Curtis Lumber, along with community organizations and members, $160,000 has been raised thus far.  Now, we need your help!

This is an opportunity for all of us to help LEAD THE LEGACY for the next generation of 4-H youth and our community.  Your contribution to 4-H is a tax-deductible donation under current IRS guidelines.
