The Jr. Leader project in Boone County allows 4-H members in grades 7-12 the opportunity to learn life skills that are important to be effective leaders of themselves and of groups. Through this project, members will participate in hands-on activities, community service events, run a food stand at the 4-H Fair and be a part of other activities that are designed to develop these skills. The Jr. Leader year starts in September and runs through the end of the fair in Boone County.
The mission of the Indiana Extension Homemakers is to strengthen families through continuing education, leadership development, and volunteer community support.
The educational 4-H sheep program and related activities (such as workshops and tours) provide youth with a fun and hands-on learning experience which develops both sheep subject skills (such as nutrition, housing, and health care) and life skills (such as responsibility, decision-making, nurturing, and communications) under the direction of caring adults.

With persistent, often heavy rainfall triggering flood alerts throughout Indiana during the last week of April and first week of May, many Hoosiers were concerned about possible damage to homes and newly planted grain crops. In response, Purdue University's Extension Disaster Education Network has compiled a list of online resources that could help Indiana homeowners and farmers coping with the storms' aftermath.
