All children face risks as they grow and develop, and most children can benefit greatly from positive interactions with caring adults. Children who have strong interpersonal skills and support are less likely to participate in risky behaviors, such as drug and alcohol use, early sexual involvement and dropping out of school.
Youth, ages 5 to 19 as of January 1 of the current year, may join.
Join a club in your county, near your home or school. Experience 4-H with a friend, invite them to join with you. Contact your county Extension office to enroll.
Join anytime! But join by the county’s 4-H enrollment deadline to take advantage of all 4-H opportunities including participation in Fair.
Members, age 9 to 19 as of January 1 of the current year, select 4-H project(s) to explore through club and county activities. Cloverbud members, age 5 to 8 participate in non-competitive activities exploring a variety of fun, hands-on interest areas.
Members learn life skills, make new friends, enhance self-esteem, achieve personal goals, develop positive relationships with peers and volunteers, and have fun learning and sharing as a family and a club.
4-H programming in Douglas County can cover most any topic that an adult in the community would like to share with youth. 4-H clubs are only possible with volunteers in the community. If you have an interest that you'd like to share with the community, our 4-H staff will help you turn it into a 4-H project curriculum that teaches leadership, life skills and citizenship.
We are offering the following 4-H Clubs for the 2023- 2024 4-H year:
