National 4-H Access, Equity and Belonging Committee

The Access, Equity and Belonging Committee (AEBC) seeks to support the 4-H System to reach its National 4-H Grows, A Promise to America’s Kids Vision: In 2025, 4-H will reflect the population demographics, vulnerable populations, diverse needs and social conditions of the country. This vision has the elements of inclusion, caring adults, serving at minimum 1 in 5 youth, and the volunteers and staff reflect the diversity of the population. This Committee aims to increase the capacity of 4-H and the Cooperative Extension System to meet this opportunity and to create a more inclusive organizational culture.
