Why 4-H Clubs are Important

4-H knows your family is important to you.  We also know how difficult it is to fit work, family, and home life into a demanding schedule.  Often, parents spend time driving their children from one activity to another and miss out on time spent together.  4-H works to solve this problem.  We encourage family involvement in 4-H.  It’s not just a youth organization, it’s a family organization.  That’s one of the reasons we are one of the largest national youth organizations in the country for boys and girls ages 9 to 19.

4-H provides children and their parents with over 200 projects and activities that are designed to help you learn and grow together.  Imagine the fun in developing interests and hobbies as a family.

You and your family can take part in 4-H by joining one of the clubs located throughout the county or forming a new club.  4-H clubs are young people having fun with friends and learning new skills.  Most clubs meet in schools or at the 4-H office once a month.

Going on tours, attending special programs and parties, raising and showing livestock, conducting community service activities, judging events, making things, and sharing what they have learned are some of the things your child can do in 4-H.  Through their club experience, youth gain skills in decision making, public speaking, cooperation, and communication.

Call the Madison County 4-H Youth Development Program at (706) 795-2281, Monday through Friday, to find out how you can be a part of one of the largest youth organizations.

4-H is open to all youth regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, or disabilities.
