4-H Youth Development
Boyle County Kentucky 4-H
Who Can Join 4-H?
Anyone from 9 to 19 can join 4-H. Some counties have younger children involved in Cloverbud activities. When 4-H began a hundred years ago, almost everyone lived on a farm. That's not true anymore. 4-H happens wherever kids live--in large cities, small towns, in rural areas, on farms, and even on military bases.
What do Kids do in 4-H?
It's up to you. You can go to camp, learn to shop wisely, give a demonstration, give a speech, cure a ham, or conquer an obstacle course. You can perform in a skit, make a birdhouse, start a business, learn about electricity, le arn to sew, raise an animal, or protect the environment.
In 4-H you will be working with other young people toward common goals and if you wish, teaching younger kids. You can build your 4-H activities around your own talents and interests.
