The new school year is rapidly approaching, and with that comes a new 4-H year.
4-H is a national organization which helps young people develop life-long knowledge and skills to become engaged citizens.
The Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program is conducted by Texas A&M, AgriLife Extension Service which is a part of the Texas A&M System. The Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program serves youth in all 254 counties in Texas.
4-H has something for all kids, from kindergarten to age 19. Young people in 4-H learn about citizenship, leadership, foods and nutrition, healthy lifestyles, veterinary science, mechanics and technology, horticulture, agriculture, and much more.
The 4-H program uses a learn-by-doing method of instruction. Each project that the 4-H member selects according to their interest and ability is the program’s cornerstone. Projects involve setting goals and evaluating progress. 4-H has things everyone can do, in the city or country or anywhere in between.
The participation cost of 4-H is $20 per year if paid before November 1st. Enrollment for the 2016-2017 year begins August 15th.
