It's a great time to join 4-H!
4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be leaders of today and tomorrow. We are a volunteer-led organization that reaches boys and girls through small groups called clubs. 4-H members choose from over 40 projects in which to participate. Most projects use hands-on learning experiences to teach subject matter and life-skills such as cooperation, leadership and decision making — skills that can be applied over and over for a lifetime. Contact Michelle Klem, 4-H youth development specialist at email@example.com or at 660-665-9866 to learn how to join 4-H. Clover Kid groups for 5 to 7 year olds will be forming soon.
