What is 4-H ?
4-H is a youth organization that belongs to the members, their families and other interested adults who serve as volunteer leaders. Professional leadership is given by the Cooperative Extension faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Extension. Support for 4-H programs is a joint effort of local county government, the University of Wisconsin- Extension and the United States Department of Agriculture.
In 4-H, young people share, grow and learn together from various projects, events and activities in informal situations under the guidance of their families and other volunteer adult leaders. Members can choose projects that fit them and the places where they live. Group activities and events such as drama, trips, camps, fairs, shows and conferences provide additional learning experiences and opportunities.
4-H is open to all youth and adults regardless of their ethnic background, race, creed or disability. Most 4-H clubs have meetings for the entire membership once a month. During these meetings, decisions are made about group-sponsored activities such as community service efforts, project opportunities and fundraising efforts.
Regardless of the structure, a 4-H group may involve families, neighbors, relatives and others. Participants have fun learning, working and succeeding together in the home, neighborhood and community. Learn more about 4-H at the Wisconsin 4-H web site:http://www.uwex.edu/ces/4h/
