What is 4-H

Dubois County 4-H offers projects for children in grades 3-12 and supports Mini 4-H in children in grades K-2. 

4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community and around the world through hands-on experiences alongside their peers and caring adults. Community clubs, afterschool programs, school enrichment, camps/workshops, and special interest programs are all ways youth across Indiana can be involved with the 4-H program.

Club membership is not required in order to participate in some 4-H programs offered throughout the year.
