Fulton County 4H

What IS 4-H

4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community through hands-on experiences alongside their peers and caring adults. 4-H relies heavily on responsible adult volunteers in order to provide a positive experience for our youth. Some of our volunteers provide leadership for our local 4-H clubs, while others contribute their expertise on a given topic. 

INDIANA 4-H MISSION: 

The Indiana 4-H Youth Development mission is to provide real-life educational opportunities that develop young people who will have a positive impact in their communities and the world.

INDIANA 4-H VISION:

Indiana 4-H Youth Development strives to be the premier, community-based program empowering young people to reach their full potential. 

 

4-H can be found in all different types of communities. 4-H is open to all youth in grades 3-12 (mini 4-H is offered to grades K-2 in most counties) without regard to race, religion, color, sex, national origin, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, or disability.

4-H IS FOR EVERYONE!!

Instructions for creating accounts and classes

 Any 4H member showing livestock at the Fulton County 4H Fair and/or at the Indiana State Fair is required to complete the YQCA training.

Please complete a course for your age level.  Since YQCA and 4HOnline no longer work together, we will need proof from you that the course is complete. We will have a master list in the Extension Office to give to all the livestock barn heads if you want to send in your copy of the certificate. Otherwise,  it is YOUR responsibility to have that with you at EACH barn when you check in your animals at the Fulton County Fair.  You can email a copy of the certificate to either me or Jeannie.

Kris :  battenk@purdue.edu

Jeannie : rock3@purdue.edu

 

The deadline to complete the course is JULY 5TH, 2023. 

Classes for the in-person certification will be announced at a later date. Please check back after January 2023.
