University of Minnesota Extension

What We Do


Extension takes the latest research from the University into people’s lives – where they live, work and play. Programming supported by Kittson County involves 4-H Youth Development.

4-H Youth Development – Learn By Doing


Minnesota 4-H provides opportunities for kids to demonstrate leadership that benefits their communities and reflects the principles of democracy. Youth have fun while they learn, grow, and reach their full potential.
  • 4-H Clubs – Join and participate! We offer Community Clubs, Project Clubs, After School Clubs, and Site-Based Clubs.
  • County and State Fairs – Showcase skills and accomplishments of Minnesota youth.
  • 4-H Adventures – Mini-blasts of fun. Try something new in a few hours, an afternoon, or a day.
Contact 4-H Program Coordinator Kaitlin Barbosa for more information.



The Extension office will be closed Monday, November 30th and Tuesday, December 1st. We should be back to normal hours by the end of this week.
