4-H projects vary as widely as the youth who participate in them. Using the vast array of projects to engage youth, the 4-H program focuses on teaching life skills through postive youth development. Whether youth enroll in Robotics and the Junior Master Naturalist program, or Photography, Animals, and Art, they learn compassion, responsibility, confidence, and respect, have opportunities to thrive through 4-H participation.
The 4-H year and annual enrollment begins October 1st. Youth 5-8 years old (as of September 1) can join the Cloverbud program where participation is non-competitive and exploratory. These members explore everything the 4-H program has to offer, and Cloverbuds are encouraged to try new subjects. Youth 9-18 years old (or 19 if still in high school) may choose to enroll in a variety of projects, and participate in competitive and non-competitive activities throughout the year.
