The Extension Services-237 Report: Everything You Need to Know

4-H cloverThe Extension Services-237 (ES-237) is a report of the Cooperative Extension Service that consists of enrollment statistics for youth ages 5–18 participating in Extension youth programs and the volunteers providing service to these programs. Since partial funding for Extension youth programs is received through the USDA, each county and state must report each year on the race, gender, grade, and residence of each participant in these programs. In Florida, the report is completed by each UF/IFAS county Extension office each year using 4HOnline, then submitted to Florida 4-H state headquarters where they are compiled into a single state report and submitted to the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This 6-page fact sheet was written by Ben Knowles and Tracy A. Tesdall, and published by the UF Department of 4-H Youth Development, October 2014.
