What is 4-H all about?
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is about having fun, learning, exploring and discovering. In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, become leaders and help shape their communities. Some 4-H youth work with animals, while others choose food, crafts, sports, or even technology! 4-H projects include bee-keeping, bicycles, photography, horticulture, electricity, computers, soil judging, environmental conservation, sewing, rodeo, public speaking, citizenship, leadership, cooking, raising animals, and much, much more.
Who can Join?
4-H Members are boys and girls between 8 years old and in the third grade to 19 years old. They live in cities, suburban neighborhoods, small towns and farms. They join 4-H because it’s fun. It provides opportunities to work and play with friends, to learn about and do interesting things and to develop leadership skills.
4-H gives young people the opportunity to explore new things…from photography to showing livestock, and everything in between. Call (210)467.6575 for details.
