The 4-H program teaches subject areas and cultivates skills that promote success in life. 4-H helps young people learn how to present themselves, feel comfortable with others, make sound decisions and much more. 4-H is open to all youth ages 5-18.
4-H clubs in Grafton County are involved in many project areas such as rocketry, animal science (horse, dairy, sheep, goats, beef, dogs, etc.), healthy living, food and nutrition, crafts, sewing and textiles, STEM, robotics, leadership, Cloverbuds (ages 5-7), environmental science, shooting sports and more!
Youth interested in becoming 4-H members, start by connecting with a 4-H club, or contacting Donna Lee, 4-H Program Manager, for assistance locating a group that best fits the needs of the family. Individuals then enroll in 4-H via the 4hOnline system.
4-H volunteer leaders work directly with youth, teaching a variety of skills. Volunteers play a vital role in the ongoing growth and development of the youth they work with. Becoming a 4-H volunteer not only helps positively impact youth, but also is a great growth opportunity for the volunteer as well. Adults interested in becoming 4-H leaders, start the screening process by submitting an application to become a 4-H volunteer.
