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 engaging afterschool and summer-camp enrichment programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), primarily serving youth in Title I school districts in the Austin area. Our hands-on, inquiry-based activities are designed to inspire creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving, while helping youth develop social and leadership skills. Such learning experiences in a fun, safe environment empower our 4-H Club members to achieve greater success academically and as adults, while reducing risk-taking behaviors that inhibit success. By establishing positive relationships with the youth we serve, 4-H CAPITAL helps youth appreciate learning, build character, and develop life skills that will enable them to become self-directing and productive community members. 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. With the support of AmeriCorps volunteers, 4-H CAPITAL has grown from one school to approximately 30, totaling more than 25,000 contact hours annually with Travis County youth.
