This exciting opportunity is open to Putnam County youth 9-14 years old, membership in 4-H is not required.

This program will be an introduction to explore a career in the vet sciences with hands-on-learning and a chance to shadow local veterinarians. A session of continuous Mondays will begin on April 8, with the first class starting at 6 p.m. All other evenings will start at 6:30 p.m. and end at 7:45 p.m. A special field trip to the Therapeutic Equestrian Center in Cold Spring is planned for April 22. The last date of the program is May 13.

The registration fee of $100 for non-4-H members, or $70 for 4-H members, will include enrollment and workbook materials. Prior participants are not eligible. Space is limited to 12 youth on a first-come, first-serve basis. Early registration is advised. Only a non-refundable, paid registration will reserve space in the workshop.
