RALEIGH, N.C. – State Employees’ CU said its SECU Foundation awarded a $1 million grant to build a new North Carolina 4-H Learning and Education Center.

The 8,400-square-foot facility, to be named the SECU 4-H Learning Center, will be located in Richmond County, serving as an educational destination for all North Carolinians, including school groups, 4-H members and families, and the general public.

The credit union said the SECU 4-H Learning Center will provide North Carolina youth with a state-of-the-art laboratory and outdoor learning stations to provide interactive experiences that will engage 4th and 8th grade social studies students year after year. For those students who cannot make the trip, the Center will travel to them through teaching kits, exhibits and online curriculum experiences. It is estimated that more than 40,000 youth and adults will be served annually at the Center, with additional school groups engaged through the travel program.
