A University of Idaho study showed how important it is for kids to feel accepted and safe during out-of-school hour activities. A program called "Jump Into Spring" began to provide something fun and educational for kids to do during spring break. Classes offered were 2 hours long, and the materials used were from approved 4-H curriculum. This activity has expanded to include more classes and reach a larger audience each year. Non-4-H members are attending at an increasing rate, exposing more youth to 4-H. Families attending appreciate something constructive and educational for youth to do during spring break.
