URI 4-H works with agencies and organizations to expand the positive impacts of youth development. There are a number of ways in which you may partner with URI 4-H.

URI 4-H Partner Groups

Partner groups are short-term programs that provide six hours of activity. URI 4-H provides all the necessary curriculum and materials to complete the program. The program will center around a specific topic, such as engineering, fine arts, biology, etc.  To start a group at your agency/organization, simply follow these steps:

  1. Read the Group Manual to learn more about the SPIN program.
  2. Peruse our Partners Brochure to see what is currently available. And to learn about our kits and Field Programs.
  3. Then fill out the online form to request an educational kit of your choosing. *FYI, here is the calendar we use to show which kits are signed out. Use this to pick a time when you know the kit is available! If it isn’t listed, it’s available!
  4. 4-H Staff will process your request and schedule with you.
