Not too Late to Join 4-H, By Megan Riley, County Youth Coordinator
4-H is a place where young people are given many opportunities to build confidence, learn responsibility, and develop skills that will last them a lifetime. It’s a place where youth make friends and share interests ranging from building rockets to raising rabbits, from camping under the stars to learning about citizenship. It’s a place where youth work together to make a positive difference in their community and adult volunteers make a powerful difference in the lives of young people.
Last year, nearly 300 young people in Buchanan County participated in 4-H activities; many of them may be your friends, classmates, and even relatives. Just ask around to see who is involved in 4-H. There are 14 different 4-H clubs located all around Buchanan County.
Buchanan County is kick starting their new program year and they would like to invite you to join. Membership is open to youth Kindergarten thru 12th grade. The classifications of membership are clover kids, students in Kindergarten thru 2nd grade, Mini Member are third graders and 4-H members are grades 4th-12th. There are hundreds of projects available for 4-H members to take part in. Adult volunteers are always needed to share their experience and enthusiasm as club and project leaders.
Get involved in 4-H and your community. To learn more about 4-H and what it has to offer young people, call (319)334-7161 or email email@example.com.
