About Us

Our Mission

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.

Our History
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 30, totaling more than 25,000 contact hours annually with Travis County youth.

What We Do
4-H CAPITAL provides high quality after-school 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.
