4-H Youth Development
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning citizenship, leadership and life skills. 4-H is the community-based educational program of the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service that involves youth ages 5- 18 in planned "learn by doing" experiences and positive supportive relationships. 4-H is open to all youth ages 5-18 regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability or national origin.
The first thing to do in 4-H is to choose a project. 4-H members "learn by doing", so your project work may include competing in a contest, going on a field trip, giving a speech, or working with an animal. In addition to becoming an expert in your project area, a 4-H member will learn leadership and communication skills. There are several clubs in 4-H to choose from. Clubs generally meet once a month and have activities centered around the club theme. For more information on clubs, contact the Baker County Extension Office at 259-3520.
You must complete an enrollment form at the beginning of each 4-H year which is September 1st. The 4-H year runs September 1st through August 31st.

There is a 4-H insurance fee that must be paid each year when enrolling or re-enrolling. If your child is in a horse club, the insurance fee is $2. For all other clubs, the fee is $1. Once the insurance fee is paid and enrollment form submitted, then the membership will be approved.
All enrollment forms and insurance fees should be submitted to the club leader or to the Baker County Extension office (located at the Baker County Agricultural Center on US Hwy 90)
