Experience Arkansas 4-H Afterschool
Arkansas 4-H Afterschool is a vibrant, statewide initiative raising the awareness for the need of positive youth development programs during after school hours. We partner with other youth-serving organizations and provide their teachers, volunteers, afterschool and summer program staff with research- based curriculum as well as, 5 hours of FREE hands- on training to help improve the quality and quantity of Arkansas’ afterschool programs.
One of our new educational tools for you to use in your 4-H Afterschool program is “Marlee and the Tree!” Marlee and the Tree is an act-along story that leads children through stretching exercises that counterbalances sitting at a desk all day. The 5-minute story is a great way to transition between activities or to help children calm down when they get overly excited.
