The Cooperative Extension 4-H & Youth Development Program at Prairie View A&M University officially started in 1985. Prior to 1985 the youth program was called the Recreation and Outdoor Education Program. Trained professionals and paraprofessionals used fun wagons that contained recreational and camping activities to attract young people and teach them to use their leisure time constructively.
Prepare youth to meet the challenges of childhood, adolescence and adulthood, through a coordinated, long-term, progressive series of educational experiences that enhance life skills and develop social, emotional, physical and cognitive competencies.
