New 4-H Family Resources


Information on Open Enrollment for 2022-2023 is now available.  New 4-H members are so valuable to our program, because they bring new ideas, experiences, and energy to our 4-H community, which helps us all develop great life skills and make the future better. After all, our motto is “To Make the Best Better” and we are happy to have you join us in this endeavor.

4-H programs are offered in every county, in every state in the nation. Locally, thousands of children, grades K-12, participate in the 4-H program through club involvement, special interest programs, and more. As a new 4-H family, you are certainly part of something very special. As you become more and more involved with 4-H, you will continue to have new opportunities – even beyond Lawrence County – because 4-H events occur at the county, area, state, national, and even international levels! But all the fun starts at the club level. We encourage your family to become very active with your 4-H club.

Your Support System

4-H is a network of clubs and projects that is mostly volunteer run, but based out of our office. Lesley Lodmell is the Extension Educator for 4-H and Youth Development, which means she helps manage the program, screen and train volunteers, and offer programming to our amazing youth.

We understand starting 4-H can be a little confusing, and the Purdue Extension-Lawrence County office is here to help.
