What do I do once I am in 4-H?

  1. In 4-H, the activities are organized by topics and called ‘projects.’ All 4-H members must be enrolled in at least one project. When you choose a project, you will learn everything there is to know about that topic. You will participate in various hands-on activities, learn new skills, do community service, or even make speeches about your project
    • How to choose your 4-H project:
      • Select a project you like.
      • Select a project that can be completed.
      • Consider the money and time it will take. Can parents/guardians help?
      • Consider the space and equipment that you have at home.
      • A 4-H project should be fun, serve a purpose, and be worth the effort.
      • Select only the number of projects you can complete.
      • Contact your local county club to see which projects are offered where you live.
    • Check out the “What is 4-H Project” flyer for more details.
    • You can find a list of projects here: https://texas4-h.tamu.edu/projects/
  2. Next you will find your club! Clubs are a great way to find others who have common interests, similar project, and who can help you as you begin your 4-H journey. Clubs are also the best way to make new friendships that will last a lifetime!
