Join Us in Celebrating the Month of the Military Child

purple background with white textApril is designated as the Month of the Military Child, a time to honor the strength and the sacrifices of our military children.

UConn 4-H recognizes the importance of providing a supportive environment for military-connected children and youth to excel. We are proud to serve military families with our predictable military youth clubs on installations and in communities across the globe. Through our military partnerships we have developed educational and community engagement opportunities for thousands of 4-H’ers on-base and off-base.

We invite you to join the celebration by taking part in PurpleUp! For Military Kids. Wear or display purple to demonstrate your support. Purple combines each branch’s colors into one: the Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard all use shades of blue, the Army uses green, and the Marines use red. Purple also references the joint environment of the military, encompassing all service branches, Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and Veterans.
