Homeschoolers Learn in 4-H
Q:My homeschooler is interested in animal science as a career. How can we participate in 4-H activities? - Harris County, Texas
Thanks for the question about 4-H and animal science.
Just about every county in the U.S. has a 4-H program as one of the outreach programs offered from the Extension service and the state land grant university system. In the county where I am the 4-H agent, Washington County, Oregon, we have a large number of homeschooled youth participating in 4-H. Most counties offer some form of animal science programming as well.
The best way to get started is to contact your local county Extension office and ask about their 4-H program. They will be able get you the most accurate information for your area.
