4-H Gives Back


March 24, 2021 | View PDF

In celebration of Nebraska 4-H Month in February, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Office in Cheyenne County and the Cheyenne County 4-H Clubs created volunteer bags for PlainsWest CASA. It is in the 4-H Pledge to use “my hands for larger service”, and this project provided an opportunity for the 4-H youth to do just that by giving back to the community and other children in need.

PlainsWest CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of children in foster care throughout Cheyenne, Kimball, and Deuel Counties. By advocating for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. The CASA volunteers are appointed by the court to speak up for the child and ensure their voice is heard in court. These volunteers meet with the child they volunteered to help each month. The volunteer bags made through the 4-H community service project will offer these children and their CASA volunteers different activities and projects to do during their visits. If you are interested in becoming a CASA volunteer, please contact the PlainsWest CASA office at 308-203-1120.

4-H provides opportunities and experiences for all youth ages five through 19 to learn by doing. These projects range from showing exhibits at the county fair, joining a club, participating in community service projects, exploring a summer camp, attending a school enrichment experience, and so much more! If you are interested in learning more about the Cheyenne County 4-H program, please call the Extension Office at 308-254-4455.
