A 4-H project is a series of learning experiences for 4-H members. There are 60 project areas available for 4-H'ers to choose from in Franklin County. Most projects have manuals or books to assist the 4-H'er with his/her project. 4-H is a "learn by doing" program. Leaders, Junior Leaders and parents are encouraged to teach and show members how to complete a task, but members are expected to learn how to do things themselves, and complete their own projects.
Quality Assurance (QA) programs are necessary to ensure our youth livestock producers are creating a product we can be proud to consume. Previously, we used the Pork Quality Assurance Program (PQA), for our swine members, but that program being phased out. It is being replaced by Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA), which addresses quality assurance in many different species and is a new requirement for livestock exhibitors.

The 4-H Program relies heavily on our dedicated volunteers to make it the best! There are many different types of volunteers, with varying degrees of involvement and time commitment, but we need them all to make Franklin County 4-H work!
All of our volunteers must go through an application and screening process and renew their commitment annually.
Many of our 4-H projects are exhibited on posters. 4-H members should be creative with their posters, but there are special rules that must be followed when making a 4-H poster so that you don't get marked down.
