Parents - Partners on the 4-H Team
When parents, grandparents, and other family members participate in 4-H, the 4-H members benefit from their support and encouragement. When families know about 4-H and the activities and events available to the members, they can help their children participate. Informed family members can help youth attend club meetings, workshops, keep records, participate in community service activities, and prepare for leadership roles in the club program.
Families are a valuable resource to 4-H. When family members have the opportunity to share their interests and talents with the 4-H members in club work, both will benefit. The young people will learn more, and the adults will get to know other families and develop positive relationships with young people.
