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 or events, contact the Baker County Extension Office at 259-3520.
The 4-H year runs September 1st through August 31st. To become a 4-H member, you must enroll or re-enroll annually for each new 4-H year and pay the 4-H membership fee.
