4-H offers a young person many opportunities. Getting involved in fun and educational 4-H projects and activities, having the opportunity to learn valuable life skills and develop self-confidence, and making new friends are all part of being a 4-H Club member. Plus field trips and Summer Camp also add educational value and fun!
“What if I don’t want to raise an animal ….. is 4-H still for me?”
Absolutely! A misconception about 4-H is that it is only about raising farm animals, and nothing else. Although livestock projects are very popular, members are not limited to only these types of learning experiences. A wide variety of other projects are also a part of 4-H. Some of these projects include: agriculture (including horticulture) and livestock, family and community health, leadership and citizenship, natural resources and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math; which includes photography).
