Welcome to Johnson County 4-H!
Welcome to the Johnson County 4-H Youth Development web page for new families! We hope this page will allow you to gain insight into joining 4-H. The key to understanding 4-H and all of the great opportunities is to get involved and ask questions. We look forward to welcoming you to our 4-H family!
What is 4-H?
4-H Is a Network of Families That Grows Great Kids. 4-H clubs have a mix of teens and younger youth, as well as a variety of interest and activities. Most meet once a month with all members. At the meeting they make group decisions about community service, hear presentations from guest speakers and other 4-H members, and learn about leadership, citizenship and public speaking. This is all done in an environment of a youth/adult partnership. We encourage all parents to attend meetings with youth to support their activities. Youth who turn 7 before January 1 of the current 4-H year may enroll. Cloverbuds, an introductory program, is available for youth ages 5 and 6. For more information about Cloverbuds click HERE. The new 4-H year begins October 1st of each year but we accept enrollment year round. Although to participate in the county fair, you must enroll by May 1.

SPIN Club stands for SPecial INterest Club. These are short-term and focus on one specific topic. The first two SPIN Clubs offered in Johnson County were Reading and BB Gun. Have a special skill or talent you would like to share with youth? Why not volunteer to lead a short term program? Please check out our SPIN Club Brochure for more details.
4-H offers a wide variety of subject matter through its many projects. Youth enrolled in community clubs will have the opportunity to take part in many of the projects with the assistance of a project leader. Project clubs will focus on one or two specific project areas and will provide a very in-depth look at the project. Click Projects for more information.
