Hamilton County 4-H

Welcome to the Hamilton County 4-H Program!  I am excited for the adventure that awaits you. 4-H provides youth with community, mentors, and learning opportunities to develop the skills they need to create positive change in their lives and communities. We want 4-H to be a safe place for all youth. Our 4-H mission is to give all youth equal access to opportunity. We have youth participate in 4-H from every school district in Hamilton County.

With more than 60 project areas 4-H truly has something for everyone. I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions about navigating the world of 4-H.

For Youth,

4-Hers have the opportunity to learn more about a subject matter that they choose to study through completing hands on activities, called projects. The Hamilton County 4-H Program offers more than 60 projects for area youth. In order to enroll in a project, members must sign up for them at the time of enrolling in 4-H. Each project has a manual that guides the youth through the learning process as well as a set of guidelines that helps them meet the project requirements. We provide adult volunteers and staff who are knowledgeable on that particular subject who will often times provide workshops to allow th​e youth to learn about that topic in a social environment. Each project has a beginner, intermediate, and advanced level-this allows youth to build on their knowledge each year and continue to challenge their skills. Projects are meant to be worked on over time, providing an educational opportunity for youth outside of the classroom setting. Often times, youth will exhibit and display their project at a local county​ fair in order to show the community what they have learned.  There is no limit to the number of projects youth can sign up for.
