4-H CAPITAL AmeriCorps Afterschool Instructors lead and assist with hands-on science activities for at-risk youth elementary and middle school students across Travis County. The program’s members teach lessons in five curriculum areas: Animal Science, Youth Gardening, Engineering, Natural Resources, and a Wildcard topic, using a combination of pre-designed lessons and lessons they create. Additionally, 4-H members volunteer with numerous outreach partners to support poverty relief, education, environmental sustainability, healthy living, or disaster services.
4-H CAPITAL is the first Austin-based AmeriCorps program to invest in the Impact Suite. We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with the program’s incredible team of staff and its AmeriCorps members.
