What is 4-H?
4-H is for boys and girls, grades K-12. The program emphasizes "learning by doing" for the growth and development of youth.
4-H is run through volunteer-led clubs. 4-H clubs are a safe place to explore new interests, learn through trial and error, and make new friends--all while having the support of a caring mentor. Each 4-H club meets at least 6 times a year. Different projects can be selected based on the interests of the youth involved. These projects are then completed within the club.
Some clubs meet weekly all year, others daily during the summer: the minimum requirement is six times per year. Most clubs work toward having their projects finished so they can enter them at the Utah County Fair. Our fair is in August at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds and entry information can be found in our e-newsletter or on this website.
There are many 4-H activities offered on the county and state levels throughout the year. Some are specific to a certain age and some require a registration fee. You may read further about these activities on both this website and the state 4-H website at http://utah4h.org
Project areas are a great way to not only develop interests but also to gain new life skills.
4-H has more than 150 projects from which to choose. Some of these include:
- Public Speaking
Other Volunteer Opportunities
There are also many volunteer options that don't require long term commitments like Volunteering for specific events. You can help chaperone a camp or retreat, help run one of our events, be a judge for the county fair, or help with an afterschool program for a day. Really, the opportunities for volunteering are limitless. If you have the time, we have the resources to help you help us!
- To get started, each 4-H family will need to set up a family account. Once that is completed you can add family members to your account (this is where you will add clubs and projects).
