Well Connected Communities

America’s Cooperative Extension System, in partnership with National 4-H Council, are working together to create healthier, more sustainable communities. With the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), land-grant universities across the nation have identified three communities to engage and support in this effort.

Within each community, local Health Councils will develop and implement action plans to address public health priorities in their area. Leveraging the proven power and innovation of 4-H youth leadership, young people will work alongside the Health Councils to provide their ideas and perspective to help create and drive change.
