4-H Programming and COVID-19 Precautions

New Jersey 4-H State Events

Update 4-8: To slow the spread of COVID-19, Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) all New Jersey 4-H in-person events, classes, programs, club meetings, and other group activities organized by or under the auspices of Rutgers Cooperative Extension are suspended through at least August 31, 2020. Our priority is the health of our communities across the state.  We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to you participating in future RCE 4-H events/programs.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

 At this time, planning for programs after August 31 must account for the possibility that social distancing measures could be extended if deemed necessary by federal and state officials. 

Local 4-H Club and 4-H Affiliate Meetings

4-H clubs with more than 15 participants (including youth and adults) should not meet in-person at this time.  Clubs may choose to cancel scheduled meetings or to hold meetings virtually.  There are multiple free, open-source virtual meeting options may be utilized, for example Google Hangout or Zoom.  

We understand the inconvenience this may cause. Our priority is the health of our communities across the state.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.


The Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades K-13, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
