Georgia Boot renews partnership with 4-H
Georgia Boot recently announced it is extending its partnership through 2026 with 4-H by creating promotional programs that directly benefit 4-H clubs in local communities and nationally. For more than 100 years, 4-H, the nation’s largest youth development organization, has positively impacted the lives of millions of young people through hands-on learning experiences that help build life skills like confidence, creativity, leadership, and resiliency.

Georgia Boot will continue their Trailblazer program providing opportunities for 4-H youth across the country to share their experiences and learnings as they complete their 4-H projects in a variety of program areas. The Trailblazer program gives Georgia Boot customers the unique opportunity to have an insider’s look at youth mentorship, research and community projects happening in their own communities. And it provides 4-H youth with a platform to showcase and celebrate their work.

Applications for the 2024 Trailblazer program open on February 1, 2024, and will close on March 3, 2024, with winners announced on April 9, 2024.

“4-H is a wonderful organization dedicated to creating opportunities for young people,” said Libby Hosler, marketing manager for Georgia Boot. “We are excited to expand our relationship with 4-H and to provide a simple pathway for our loyal customers to support their essential programs.”

Through Cooperative Extension’s network of over 100 land-grant universities, 4-H’s research-backed programs reach young people through school and community clubs, in-school and after-school programs, online through CLOVER by 4-H, and 4-H camps. The life-changing 4-H experience is delivered by 3,500 4-H professionals and 500,000 volunteers who serve every county and parish in the country. 4-H programs are peer-led, hands-on and community-focused with programming that is often customized to fit the needs of the local community.

“We’re proud to continue our partnership with Georgia Boot to give more kids access to hands-on learning opportunities in 4-H so they find their spark and reach their full potential,” said Heather Elliott, senior vice president and chief development officer, National 4-H Council. “Thanks to their Trailblazer program, we can bring greater visibility to the incredible youth leaders in 4-H and the impact they’re making in their communities.”
