Athens-Clarke County:
4-H Youth Development


5th and 6th grade students recently competed at Cloverleaf DPA at South Jackson School.


Welcome to the website for Athens-Clarke County 4-H.  Everything you want and need to know about activities, current events, important dates, forms, and contact information can be found here.  Athens-Clarke County 4-H consists of more than 1500 4-H'ers within the county and is led by the 4-H Agent and two Program Assistants. 

Information concerning the Athens-Clarke County 4-H Club activities for the school year 2014-2015 can be found in the parent-student handbook.

So what is 4-H you ask...?

4-H creates a world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change! The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.

Who can join 4-H and how can I join?

Any youth ages 9-19 are eligible to join 4-H. All students in the 5th grade will join 4-H at the beginning of each school year. Youth in the 6th - 12th grades will also be given the opportunity to join 4-H during the first club day of each year. Any other eligible youth may contact the Athens-Clarke County 4-H Office to receive enrollment information. Meeting schedules for 5th grade and middles schools are posted in the 4-H calendars. Middle school 4-H registration forms are now available on our web site and at your school. For additional information about 4-H in your school contact Ms. Conway at (706)613-3640 or by email
