Which has a more positive effect on youth – sports or 4-H? A study by Tufts University shows 4-H is good for kids.
The Marion County 4-H program reaches more than 3,000 young people in our communities each year through their involvement in clubs, after-school programs, camps, and school based programs.
We couldn’t reach all of these youth each year without the help of our volunteers! Do you have what it takes to become a 4-H volunteer? Check it out!
