This article reports that 4-H Wildlife Stewards volunteers trained in building community capacity and how to work collaboratively with schools and community partners are making a difference in the lives of thousands of youth. 4-H Wildlife Stewards work with students and teachers to create, use, and sustain Habitat Sites on school grounds for science learning. Evaluation of the project documents that student interest and knowledge in science increases when 4-H Wildlife Stewards projects are initiated. Today, 188 active 4-H Wildlife Stewards work with 376 classroom teachers and over 12,000 youth to deliver hands on science education.
