Ware County:
4-H Youth Development

What is 4-H

4-H is an organization that assists youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society. While 4-H once began as a Boys Corn Club and a Girls Tomato Canning Club, today the mission is accomplished through “hands on” learning experiences focusing on the core values of agriculture, citizenship, communication, environment, family and consumer sciences, and leadership.

Who is Eligible

Any person, regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, or disability may enroll as a 4-H member.

Youth who are nine years of age and have not reached their nineteenth birthday on or before January 1, of the current year may enroll in 4-H clubs and groups.

4-H does not charge dues or require uniforms. However, there are fees and dress associated with certain events and programs outside of the classroom.

How to Join 4-H

All 4th-6th grade students are enrolled in Ware County 4-H because 4-H is a part of the normal school enrichment. We meet on a monthly basis in the classroom. 4th grade curriculum focuses on healthy lifestyles, 5th grade curriculum focuses on college and career readiness, and 6th grade curriculum focuses on financial literacy.

7th-12th graders can enroll in 4-H anytime by stopping by the 4-H office. We hold monthly after-school meetings for the Junior and Senior Club.

Students who are home-schooled may participate in all 4-H activities for their age group. top
