About Us

What is 4-H?

4-H is a youth organization for children/teen aged 5-18 run by youth officers. Members pick a specific area they are interested and enroll in that "project" and focus on that area for that year. Through the project work, members will develop citizenship, leadership and life skills.

The 4 H's stand for head, heart, hands, and health, which represents the four values that members work on throughout the year; thinking and learning, caring, working and giving, and healthily living.

Projects

When you join, you can pick what projects you want to join. (See the Project link on the top menu for a full list of the projects we currently offer) Throughout the program year, you will, depending on the project, learn more about it, practice it, and/or make or improve something. Near the end of the 4-H year, many members exhibit their completed projects, demonstrate their ability, or show what they have learned.

Events and Community Service

Besides projects, there are many events and community service activities to take part in. They can be found in the calendar, and are also mentioned at club meetings. Each month, we try to have at least one community service either at the meeting or as a separate event.

Who can join 4-H?

Youth age 5-18 are eligible to participate in 4-H.  Youth 5 years old as of December 31st of the program year can enroll as primary members. If you are 9 years old by December 31st of the program you may sign up as a regular member. Youth remain eligible to participate as a member in scheduled activities until the end of the calendar year in which they turn 19 years old.

How do I join?

Attend our open house on the second Monday of September. Learn more about 4-H, talk to members and project leaders, and sign up for projects you are interested in. There are adults there who will help you complete the necessary paperwork, register online, and collect the program fee. After that, attend club and project meetings and have fun!
