In your 4-H club, you will work with other young people and adult volunteers to make new friends, learn new skills, practice being a leader, and give back to your community. You will learn about topics that interest you. As a 4-H member, you will choose one or more topics to learn about during the year. That includes everything from learning how to cook, build a robot, or care for the environment. These are referred to as members’ “projects.” Hundreds of projects are offered through 4-H so you can pick the ones that most interest you.
Your first project will be doing the activities in this new member project guide. You will:
Record information about your 4-H club.
Sample some of the projects offered in 4-H.
Learn the 4-H pledge and motto.
Lead your family or friends in a fun activity.
