    More Information

    4-H Is...
    Learning by doing.

    4-H is available to all boys and girls in the 3rd through 12th grades, from urban, suburban and rural areas. First, an adult leader brings together youth that have common interests. Second, the youth choose one or more projects. Projects are chosen from among 100 project areas offered, or if you don't see the one you like, you can create your own project. Third, the group enrolls as a club, and fourth meets together to learn and have FUN. Clubs are able to explore   4-H activities, events and trips. In 4-H there are events happening all year round.

    BRING TOGETHER a group of young people with similar interests and an adult  leader to guide the club.  Teens are encouraged to become youth leaders. No previous experience is necessary, just the desire to have fun and learn together as a club.

    CHOOSE A PROJECT of interest to your group.  There are over 100 projects to choose from, or create your own. Contact the USU County Extension Office if you need project ideas.  Decide on a name for your club.  Choose a day and time to meet that fits the needs of the group.

    ENROLL A GROUP at your USU County Extension Office by completing an enrollment sheet, paying dues, and picking up club project materials.

    MEET & LEARN together to complete selected projects.  Enter members' finished projects in the County Fair.  Learning will be enhanced by including community service projects.  Explore other 4-H events, activities and trips.
