4-H is for every kid ages 5-18, and we’re bound to have something you’re interested in. We have projects in Healthy Living, Leadership, Environmental Science, STEM, Animal Care, Agriculture, Arts, and many more! Joining 4-H is easy and there are many ways to get started!
- Join a 4-H club that’s in your area.
- Start a 4-H club . . . just 5 members and an adult is all you need.
- Join a special interest group–a group that gets together for a short time to learn about one thing, or to participate in one activity.
- Enroll as an individual and explore the project of your choice! In your school, look for 4-H school enrichment programs.
Your local county 4-H agent is your key to getting started in 4-H. They can tell you what clubs already exist in your county, what projects are being worked on, how to start a new club, or how to participate on your own.
Why Should I Join 4-H?
In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. Do you like learning new and exciting things? Spending time with friends and meeting new people? Working with your hands? Developing skills as a leader? Are you all about competition and awards? Do you prefer working cooperatively and being recognized for your work? Are you one who would rather work alone? We have it all, and 4-H is a great place to try new things for the first time because we believe to “learn by doing” is the best way!
