Jefferson County 4-H Projects

Projects in 4-H are built around three important principles:

  • Subject matter knowledge and skills
  • Self-development
  • Social interaction among people of different backgrounds, experiences, and ages.

Projects are real-life experiences that help 4-Hers learn to make decisions.  The decisions help members to feel responsible for their own actions and can lead to personal satisfaction.  Members also develop:

  • Good work habits
  • Learn to work with others
  • Sharing ideas
  • Helping each other
