KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., explored the impacts of 4-H for youth across Nebraska on its latest Agency for Change Podcast. The episode features Kathleen Lodl, associate dean and 4-H program administrator, UNL Department of Extension. 

“We were thrilled to feature the incredible programs of 4-H on our podcast,” said Katie Ripa, KidGlov vice president, account director. “Beyond the traditional programs we often associate with 4-H, this group truly empowers youth through enrichment opportunities, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education across the state.” 

The mission of 4-H is to empower young people with skills to lead for a lifetime. They are America’s largest youth development organization – empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. and 140,000 across Nebraska. Key Nebraska 4-H programs include campus clubs, school enrichment, after school programs and special interest programs. Over the decades, the organization has adapted to meet the needs and interests of young people. 

 “Now, we’re doing robotics and rocketry in addition to healthy lifestyles. We’ll always do leadership and give young people the opportunity to do public speaking. But now, that public speaking opportunity may be a video or maybe doing a TikTok presentation. So it’s still the basic tenets of positive youth development and helping young people be successful,” said Lodl. 

STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs are a growing focus for Nebraska 4-H. They developed and operate Click2Science, a video-based education program that provides teaching resources and training for adult volunteers and educators.
