What is 4-H?
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning citizenship, leadership and life skills. 4-H is the community-based educational program of the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service that involves youth ages 5-18 in planned "learn by doing" experiences and positive supportive relationships. 4-H is open to all youth ages 5-18 regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability, or national origin.
What is there to do in 4-H?
The first thing to do in 4-H is to choose a PROJECT
4-H members "learn by doing", so your project work may include competing in a contest, going on a field trip, giving a speech, or working with an animal. In addition to becoming an expert in your project area, a 4-H member will learn leadership and communication skills. See resources to right.
How do I Join 4-H?
You must complete an enrollment form and a participation form at the beginning of each 4-H year which is Sept. 1.
IS THERE A FEE?
Starting in the 2016-2017 4-H Year, there will be a fee.
