4-H and Youth Development

4-H provides fun filled, hands-on experiences under the direction of caring adults. To participate in 4-H you need to enroll in at least one project but you can take several depending on your needs and interests. In each project, you’ll develop skills that will help you become more competent at doing things on your own. You’ll also learn valuable “life skills,” those things you will use later, no matter what you do in life. 4-H is a fun way to also develop skills and hobbies you will enjoy for many years.
