GOLO Announces $10K Donation to the University of Delaware 4-H Program to Support Healthy Living Initiatives

July 20, 2021

As part of our ongoing commitment to support community-based health and wellness initiatives, GOLO, the pioneering wellness solutions company, recently donated $10K to the University of Delaware 4-H Program. The funds will support various educational programs managed by the University of Delaware 4-H, specifically initiatives emphasizing the importance of health and nutrition.

“We have long admired the contributions made by The University of Delaware 4-H Program to families in the community,” says Jennifer Brooks, President, GOLO LLC. “Our donation will help to support their efforts in the areas of healthy living and nutrition education.”

The goal of the Delaware 4-H program is to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility, and life skills of youth through a positive youth development approach. The program incorporates the National 4-H Essential Elements that include creating an environment where youth feel a sense of belonging, have an opportunity to master skills, practice independence, and develop a spirit of generosity. 4-H members are involved in long-term learning experiences with peers and adult volunteers while participating in interactive, hands-on learning and innovative opportunities as they grow and work together as catalysts for positive change. 

“Healthy Living is one of the three national mission mandates for the 4-H youth development program, and we continually strive to provide important knowledge, information, and real-life experiences to our 4-H youth in this area,” says Doug Crouse, State 4-H Youth Development Leader. “The University of Delaware 4-H Program looks forward to this unique partnership with GOLO to support our 4-H youth members with valuable initiatives around health, nutrition, and wellness.”

Headquartered in Newark, Delaware, GOLO empowers individuals and communities by helping them take control of their health and wellness. The company’s donation to the University of Delaware 4-H will support a range of programming in Kent, Sussex, and New Castle Counties.
