The 4-H Veterinary Science Project is a 5-year curriculum based project with 100 lessons and 50 activities that gives youth interested in veterinary medicine opportunities to work in the field. The project is career-oriented and job-training so students can determine if this is a field they would like to pursue.
This project has a set curriculum that allows youth and adults to work together to achieve success. It also allows for youth to develop an interest in veterinary medicine, human medicine and other allied health fields.
After completion of the 5 year course, 4-H’ers will receive a Certificate of Completion and will be able to apply to take an exam to become a Certified Veterinary Assistant.
4-H members may begin the project at any age, but have to be 16 years old in order to apply to take the test.
