There are many trip opportunities for high school age 4-H members in the summer! From Purdue to Washington DC to Indianapolis, and most of them are sponsored so there is little cost to you and your family!
The application is available electronically on Google Forms, or you can print the form from the related files, and send it in by the March 23rd deadline!
The 4-H Program relies heavily on our dedicated volunteers to make it the best! There are many different types of volunteers, with varying degrees of involvement and time commitment, but we need them all to make Franklin County 4-H work!
All of our volunteers must go through an application and screening process and renew their commitment annually.

Mini 4-H is a program designed to encourage positive development of children in first and second grade. The goal of the Mini 4-H program is to help young children explore friendships outside the family, explore the way in which things work, practice both small and large muscle control, and think about the ways people work together on projects.
A 4-H project is a series of learning experiences for 4-H members. There are 60 project areas available for 4-H'ers to choose from in Franklin County. Most projects have manuals or books to assist the 4-H'er with his/her project. 4-H is a "learn by doing" program. Leaders, Junior Leaders and parents are encouraged to teach and show members how to complete a task, but members are expected to learn how to do things themselves, and complete their own projects.
The Franklin County 4-H Fair is a favorite family friendly summer activity for the residents and visitors of Franklin County. It takes place the 3rd week in July at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Brookville, Indiana.
Visit us to see the incredible 4-H exhibits, quality livestock and animal shows, open class exhibits, rides, food, games, grandstand events and more! Admission to the fair is free!
