McDuffie County:
4-H Youth Development


Welcome to McDuffie County 4-H! On this page you will find information about activities, events, dates, forms, newsletters, contact information, and more. McDuffie County 4-H consists of nearly 700 4-H'ers and is led by the 4-H Agent, 4-H Program Assistant, and certified adult and teen leaders.

So, what is 4-H...?

4-H is all about "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agriculture, the environment, family and consumer science, and leadership. These areas are the context in which we help student acquire knowledge and develop life skills that will enable them to become self-directing and productive members of society.

How do I join…?

Any youth ages 9-19 are eligible to join 4-H.

All students in the 5th and 6th grade will participate in club meetings at school. This is where they will join and meet once a month. This is also where they will receive information about after school activities.

Student in the 7th - 12th grades will also be given the opportunity to join 4-H during the first club day of each year. Meetings will be after school either at the school or the 4-H office.

Parents and students are welcome to visit the McDuffie County Extension office, in the Old Courthouse, to sign up for 4-H.

Home schoolers, we want you too! Please call the Extension office or come by and visit so we know you are interested.
