The Cloverbud Program is a hands-on, activity-based program for youth aged 6–8 (prior to January 1, 2023), covering a variety of topics, including agriculture, food, crafts, life skills, the environment and science. Cloverbuds get a taste for the topics in 4-H projects and an understanding of 4-H values. The program provides many opportunities to “Learn To Do By Doing”.
To successfully complete a year as a Cloverbud, youth must finish a minimum of just 4 projects, a total of 8 hours plus attend the Achievement. However, participants can take as many projects as are offered by Cloverbud leaders. Cloverbud participants pay a membership fee to take part in the program similar to traditional 4-H; membership fees give members access to all 4-H opportunities such as camps, educational experiences, scholarships/grants, etc.
4-H members and parents are expected to volunteer for a 3-hour shift in the 4-H Food Booth during the Emo Fall Fair. Although, the age for Cloverbud members is young they are very helpful when paired with older kids at the booth and parents are always needed to cook/wrap burgers, peel/fry potatoes or assist as cashier.
The Cloverbud Program is an amazing opportunity for youth ages 6-8 to learn about all facets of 4-H Projects!View Project Manual
