Dog eating your shoes again? Do you want to garden but have a brown thumb? Dream of cloning yourself to be three places at once? These are just a few of life’s little questions. 4-H can help you with these questions. 4-H is a place where everyone in the family can go together on the same night to a 4-H meeting. Join 4-H and learn the basics of dog obedience in the dog project. Join 4-H and open up a new world of fashion options by designing clothes or buying them, selecting accessories and modeling.
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. It is the largest youth organization in the United States. It is for youth age 7-19 years old. Barton County also has Cloverbuds for 5 or 6 year olds.
4-H is not only for youth, but for adults, too. Adult volunteers are a vital asset to the program. We depend on them to share their knowledge and expertise with the youth. All volunteers are asked to complete a Volunteer Information Profile and complete training. We are always thrilled to add additional volunteers to our group.
There is no cost to join 4-H but there may be costs related to projects. The first step to joining the club is to fill out a project enrollment card and choose some projects you would like to work on. There are over 30 projects and they range from beef to dog, leadership to photography and everything in between. There is even a self-determined project that allows you to create your own project.
