4-H is a youth development leadership program for ages 6-21 from urban & rural areas learning about health, environment, agriculture, food & communication in a hands on learning atmosphere delivered by screened & trained 4-H volunteers to become contributing citizens in their communities all while creating lasting friendships.

Our local volunteers, who are screened and trained, ensure the very best experience for our participants. Each club must have at least two screened and trained volunteers.

Come have some fun with us!!
