Join 4-H

There are 16 active 4-H Clubs in Cole County, and you don't have to grow up on a farm to belong to 4-H. Currently, Shooting Sports is the fastest growing project but with so many choices to choose from, almost anyone can find something that they enjoy. 4-H is open to all youth ages 5-18. Go to our Cole County 4-H Home Page or contact Youth Specialist Jenny Flatt at flattj@missouri.edu for more information.

The new 4-H year began October 1. Contact the office for more information to see how you can get your child signed up or let us know if you are interested in volunteering as a project leader. Or check out a club near you at: http://extension.missouri.edu/cole/4hclubs.aspx
