4-H Youth


4-H Resources

In 4-H young people have the opportunity to "experience" through "hands-on" learning and discovery in project areas such as foods and nutrition, sewing, hiking, citizenship, community service, photography, large and small animals, lap animals, horses, and more. Older 4-H members develop leadership skills by assisting and instructing younger 4-H members under the guidance and leadership of volunteer adult leaders. 4-H is also a family affair, involving the total family in the various 4-H projects, events, and activities.

There are approximately 25 4-H clubs in the county ranging from beef, swine, horses and goats, to poultry and rabbits. Other clubs include citizenship, dog obedience, foods and nutrition, clothing, and hiking.
