So you want to join 4-H? 4-H is for you ... if you are 5–18 years old, want to learn by doing, like to receive recognition for work well done, want to learn skills that can help you in your future career, or wish to develop leadership skills.
Your local county MSU Extension office is your key to getting started in 4-H. They can tell you which 4-H clubs already exist in your county, the projects that are being worked on, how to start a new club, or how to participate on your own.
The most common question we get is: how do I join 4-H? It’s encouraging to see so many young people wanting to get involved in the activities 4-H offers!
Ah yes, 4-H. We talk about it quite a lot in Extension. You’ve probably seen the green clover on our website and around your community. You might even know some 4-H’ers who talk about how much they love being a member. But what exactly is it? (Photo by Kevin Hudson)
