Learn about 4-H

Youth in grades 4-12 may choose a club based on location, age or special interest.  If club leader information is not available, please contact the County Youth Coordinator.  We are happy to assist you in contacting a club leader.  It is important that you make contact with the club leaders, as they can give you specific information about the club such as meeting times, special club rules and whether they are already at full membership.

You should spend some time familiarizing yourself with the 4-H program.  Look for a project in your interest areas by checking in the Pick Your Adventure Guide and check out 4-H Project Hot Sheets and consider attending the NEW 4-H member pizza party and information meeting held in January.  Check our calendar for more information about upcoming 4-H workshops and events throughout the year.
