4-H Youth Development/Health & Human Sciences Extension Educator/County Extension Director

Brooke Goble is from northern Indiana in a small town of Walkerton, IN. She grew up on a Dairy farm where she was also an active 10 year 4-H member, taking over 20 projects each year. This was where her passion for working with youth began. Brooke obtained a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana State University in Family and Consumer Science Education with a minor in Food and Nutrition. While in college, she worked as a 4-H Summer Intern in Clay County and eventually became a 4-H Program Assistant in St. Joseph County. While 4-H was an important part of Brooke’s life, she still wanted to be a teacher and work with youth daily. For a couple years, she worked in Knox County as a teacher, before leaving and coming back to Purdue Extension and 4-H. Now Brooke loves being a part of Purdue Extension here in Pike County as the 4-H Youth Development and Health and Human Sciences Educator!

When Brooke is not working, she enjoys crafting, camping, baking, playing with her dog Bruce, and being outside with her friends and family.

Who can be in 4-H?

Mini 4-H is for youth in Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade at time of enrollment.

What are the 4 "H's"?

  • Head – for thinking, planning, reasoning
  • Heart – for kindness and truth
  • Hands – to be helpful, skillful, and useful
  • Health – for strength to enjoy life, resist disease and be more efficient

What are the costs involved?

There is a $20 program fee for Pike County 4-H that helps cover costs of materials and programming. Families will not pay more than $60 in the case of having more than three youth enrolled. Families should keep in mind the cost of materials for each project. Some projects, such as arts and crafts, could have very minimal costs and supplies, where projects like beef, and horse and pony can be costly. We suggest you decide as a family what type of project best suits your family's budget.
