4-H is a Program offered for youth in the 4th - 12th grades. There is a separate "Clover Kids" Program for Children K-3. Click Here for more information.

If your youth is in grades K-3 they will need to join a Clover Kids club. Many of our 4-H clubs already have a Clover Kids club that they associate with. For more information contact the County Youth Coordinator or the club leader.

Parent's 4-H Pledge

 
(From University of Illinois Extension)
 
I pledge my HEAD to give
my child the information I
can, to help him/her see
things clearly, and to make
wise decisions.
 
I pledge my HEART to encourage
and support my child no
matter whether he/she has
successes or disappointments.
 
I pledge my HANDS to
help my child’s club; if I
cannot be a club leader, I
can help in many equally
important ways.
 
I pledge my HEALTH to
keep my child strong and
well for a better world through
4-H for my child’s club, our
community, our country,
and our world
