Ware County:
4-H Youth Development

2015 DPA


4-H is the world’s largest youth organization. 4-H 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.

Ware County 4-H is dedicated to providing youth development opportunities to students ages 9-19. 4-H offers a variety of in-school and out-of-school educational and fun opportunities. 4-H is the Youth Education Program of the University of Georgia (UGA). It is administered by UGA Extension which is part of the UGA College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences.
