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

The 4-H experience is combination of two things: PROJECTS and CLUBS.

    1. Click here on “What is 4-H Project” to find out exactly what a 4-H project can be.
      • 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.
    1. You can find a list of projects here: https://texas4-h.tamu.edu/projects/
  • CLUBS:
    1. Next you will find your club!
      • Clubs are the best way to make new friendships that will last a lifetime!
        • Clubs are where youth meet others in 4-H, have a chance to develop leadership skills, and learn to serve others in their communities.
        • Clubs are a great way to find others who have common interests, similar projects, and who can help you as you begin your 4-H journey.
