Projects


4-H projects are a great way to explore your interest in a vast variety of areas!
 
To begin your 4-H adventure, start looking at the many project areas that 4-H has to offer. You may choose one or more projects from more than 45 different areas. There is a 4-H project for everyone! Projects are fun to do alone and with your friends.
Think about:

  • An interest you’d like to explore
  • A hobby you’d like to learn more about
  • A topic of interest shared by you and your family
  • Something that is fun for you

Remember to select projects that you can get help with from your:

  • parents/guardian
  • grandparents
  • friends
  • other 4-H members

Work with your parents/guardian and leader to select your 4-H projects. Let’s say you want to learn how to take a photograph, feed a dog, build a birdhouse, or plant a garden. When you learn those skills, you also learn life skills such as:

  • how to make decisions and set goals
  • how to get organized
  • how to keep records
  • how to work with others
