    The purpose of 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge developing life skills and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive members of society. 4-H is open to youth 9-19 years old as of September 1st. The Cloverbud program is open to youth 5-8 years of age. We have several clubs and leaders that serve our youth in a variety of project areas.
