Before going on to become a leader in both the practice and business of medicine, Faustino Bernadett was a 4-H member and began his working life selling eggs door to door from his red wagon in Chico, California.
As a California 4-H alumnus, Faustino Bernadett seeks to give back to the organization that gave so much to him as a young person. This is what fueled him and his wife to donate to the National 4-H Council’s Fourward campaign and donate 100,000 books to underprivileged kids.
In 2017, Faustino Bernadett was recognized as a 4-H alumnus and for his work as a co-founder of the Molina Foundation, which partners with thousands of community organizations nationally.
Recently the 4-H posted the "Top Moments from 10 Years of the 4‑H Legacy Awards". In the top moments, Faustino Bernadett is featured with a fun story from his youth about how 4-H came through for him.
4-H is America’s largest youth development organization, empowering nearly six million young people across the country with the skills they need to lead for a lifetime. This “Community for Kids'' is delivered by Cooperative Extension, comprising more than 100 public universities across the nation that provide experiences where young people learn by doing.
