4-H Projects

A project is simply a topic that you can explore. As you explore a 4-H project, you’ll learn more than just subject matter. You’ll learn life skills, too. These include valuable skills such as communication, working with others, problem-solving, and decision-making.

There are so many types of projects available to youth in 4-H!

4-H members who are in 5K-2nd grade should enroll in the Cloverbud project.  The Cloverbud project is a project that offers our youngest 4-H members developmentally appropriate exposure to a variety of projects.

Some projects are offered at the club level.  Hundreds are available through self-study.  Check out the comprehensive list of 4-H project areas.  A PDF version is available for download.

Below is a list of Kenosha’s countywide 4-H projects, meaning there is at least one project leader and regular meetings available to 4-H members throughout the county, regardless of the 4-H club in which they are enrolled.
