All About 4-H!
If you are 9 to 21 years of age as of January 1, this year, 4-H could be for you.
The 4-H Motto is: “Learn To Do By Doing”
The 4-H’s are: Head, Heart, Hands, Health
The 4-H pledge is: “I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, my Heart to greater loyalty, my Hands to larger service and my Health to better living for my club, my community and my country.”
How 4-H Clubs Work!
4-H clubs are comprised of a minimum of six 4-H members and two trained, screened volunteers who act as club leaders. Each club must have a minimum of 6, two hour meetings, which are organized by the club leaders for members to learn a specific topic. 4-H meetings are structured with formal meeting time and hands-on learning time. 4-H gives members, ages 9-21, as of January 1 of the current year, the chance to develop self-confidence, the ability to work with others, responsibility and leadership skills.
The 4-H program has over 45 different 4-H projects to choose from under the major headings of: Agriculture, Animals, Arts and Crafts, Foods, Machines, Marketing, Outdoors & Environment, Personal Development, Plants, etc. *Leaders are needed!
