4-H offers a young person many opportunities. Getting involved in fun and educational 4-H projects 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 animals, and nothing else. But 4-H offers much more than just animal projects, although animal projects are very popular. Some of the other projects include: Photography, Health & Fitness, Food & Nutrition, Clothing & Textiles, Public Speaking, Leadership, Recycling, Shooting Sports, Robotics, Entomology, Junior Master Gardener, Horse, Companion Animal, etc. The availability of these, however, depends upon whether we have a volunteer leader for the project.
4-H membership is open to youth who are in grades 3 through 12.
To maintain the level of programming and opportunities in the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program, an annual participant fee is necessary for each 4-H member. The participant fee is $25, … or $20 if enrolled between August 15th to October 31st of each year.
