Projects

4-H activities are great fun, but their purpose is not just entertainment. It's teaching skills and values through putting them into practice.

The core 4-H activities revolve around projects. 4-H has both individual and group projects.

Club members choose from a wide range of individual projects, based on their interests and the availability of a knowledgeable adult in the community to serve as a mentor/leader (matching facilitated through clubs). Through these projects, members set goals, learn the skills needed to achieve goals, and exhibit/demonstrate their skills at events like county fairs, speaking contests and other competitions.

Project Categories:

Members are also involved in group projects in their clubs, which usually revolve around community service or learning how to lead/run groups or meetings.
