4-H involves youth in project-based education. Through project learning, youth can explore their interests and master new skills. 4-H projects are meant to be hands-on to create a memorable learning experience. Since 4-H started in the early 1900s, youth have learned by doing. This hands-on process allows youth to understand not only how to do something but also why they are doing it.
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.
Below is a list of countywide 4-H projects, meaning that there is a schedule of project meetings taking place that are open to youth throughout the county.
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.
