4-H is a youth development organization that helps young people develop skills they will use for the rest of their life. Skills like knowing how to run a meeting, being able to express opinions in front of a group, how to set goals, how to plan and organize. Through the 4-H club experience members gain self confidence, develop responsibility and have a chance to explore all kinds of interest that might develop into lifelong hobbies or a career. Some of the projects offered through some of the area 4-H clubs include: Poultry, Rabbits, Sheep, Swine, Beef, Horses, Dog Care & Training, Goat, Arts & Crafts, Beginning 4-H, Cake Decorating, Ceramics, Citizenship, Clothing & Textiles, Food & Nutrition, Food Preservation, Welding, Photography and Scrapbooking. (Note: not all projects are offered at all clubs).
