4-H Youth Development
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. 4-H helps young people acquire the skills and knowledge to become self-directing, productive, contributing members of our community through projects, events and activities. Rocketry, woodworking, foods, gardening, and clothing are just a few examples of the diverse offerings that help teach youth.
Raising great kids is a challenging task, but it's easier when you have a team of people behind you. 4-H clubs are groups of families that do just that. Through working together, families share knowledge and interests to help kids learn practical skills and important values.
What do 4-H clubs do?
4-H Clubs meet once a month and members consist of boys and girls ages 7-18. 4-H'ers run the meetings using parliamentary procedure with some help from the adult club leaders. The youth president will lead the meeting but the whole club is involved in all the decisions made. During the meetings youth will discuss a number of items including community service projects, fundraising and club activities. 4-H'ers will have a chance to work on their public speaking by giving presentations to the club.
