Colorado County 4-H

WHAT IS 4-H ALL ABOUT?

4-H IS MORE THAN JUST A CLUB!  4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.  4-H is about having fun, learning, exploring and discovering.  In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, become leaders and help shape their communities.

M4-H Cloverore than 65,000 Texas youth are enrolled members of 4-H community clubs in Texas.  Another 850,000 Texas youth get involved in 4-H through special educational opportunities at school, in after school programs, or at neighborhood or youth centers.  These youth live in cities, suburbs, small towns and rural communities.

4-H gives them a chance to pursue their own interests – from photography to computers, from building rockets to raising sheep.  They go places – to camp, to state and national conferences and they learn to be leaders and active citizens.

In 4-H clubs, they serve as officers and learn to conduct meetings, handle club funds, and facilitate group decision-making.  In a growing number of communities, 4-H youth serve as youth representatives in municipal or county government or as members of Teen Courts.  They give back to their communities.  4-H members get involved in volunteer projects to protect the environment, mentor younger children and help people who are less fortunate.
