Welcome to 4-H in Westchester County!
4-H represents groups of young people in all parts of Westchester County having fun together and learning by doing.
4-H clubs offer a world of opportunities for boys and girls to learn new things, go new places, meet new people.
A club is an organized group of five or more young people. The members elect their own officers and operate as a democracy in action.4-H club members learn new skills, work on educational projects, have fun together, conduct business meetings, and are involved in community service projects.
Any boy or girl, 5 to 19 years old, willing to follow the 4-H ideals and standards may join. Anyone at least 5 years old as of January 1 st, may join a 4-H .
Learning experiences built into every 4-H project are the tools used to help shape the 4-H youth.
Adults interested in the youth of their community and willing to share their time and talents with young people become 4-H Leaders.4-H leaders are often parents of club members. Find your potential, meet awesome kids, and accomplish things you never thought possible.
4-H helps youth grow into:
1.Find at least 5 friends, about your age who are interested in joining 4-H.
2.Arrange a meeting of the parents of these friends. A club needs 2 adult leaders.
3.Contact the 4-H office and suggest two possible dates for a meeting. You will be given assistance in starting your 4-H club. Leadership training opportunities for youth and adults are ongoing.
