The 4-H Veterinary Science Career Exploration Program gives high school students (grades 9-12) an opportunity to explore veterinary careers and develop skills with experienced animal professionals.
For 2020, all sessions will be held virtually through Zoom.
The program fee is $75.00* due with registration. Since we are not able to meet in person, we are offering this program at a greatly reduced price.
Financial assistance is available for families with demonstrated need.
*Registration fee must be paid in full prior to the first session of the program.
