National 4-H photo

A community of young people learning citizenship, leadership, and life skills.

4-H learning takes place in 4-H Community Clubs led by volunteer adult leaders, held all across Lane County. Each 4-H Community Club has multiple volunteers to lead the various project groups within the club.

Club activities are rooted in positive youth development, helping youth build leadership, cititzenship, and life skills. These activities aim to promote positive growth in each area of the 4 H's - Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.

Most clubs meet monthly. During meetings members discuss both the successes and challenges they have experienced in their project. They give presentations, listen to speakers, update records, participate in hands-on learning games, and many other FUN activities!

While working on their projects, 4-H members make friends, learn responsibility, and gain organizational and record keeping skills - all while having the time of their lives!

Contact 4-H staff with questions, comments, and to learn more about 4-H!
