4-H CAPITAL Full Time Afterschool Instructor
 
 
 
4-H CAPITAL inspires youth to develop into inquiring scientists, citizens of character, partners in service, and engaged community members through participation in project-based learning experiences and collaborative community involvement. 4-H CAPITAL provides high quality school-time and afterschool enrichment programs that focus on science, engineering and technology. We provide hands-on learning experiences that not only help youth become successful adults but also reduce risk-taking behaviors that inhibit success. By establishing positive relationships with the youth we serve, 4-H CAPITAL allows our 4-H Club members to acquire science and inquiry-based knowledge and skills, build character, and develop life skills in a fun learning environment that will enable them to become self-directing, productive members of society. 4-H CAPITAL began in 1992 as a 5-year USDA grant. Adopted by Travis County in 1997, the program received its first AmeriCorps grant in 2003; since then, AmeriCorps funding has been continuously renewed annually. Our team consists of staff instructors, curriculum area coordinators, administrators, and AmeriCorps members who provide high-quality educational programming at over 30 elementary and middle school campuses across Travis County.
