Sign Up for Shelby County 4-H

4H Shamrock4-H is one of the largest youth development programs in America with more than 6.5 million young people, ages 5-19, and 540,000 youth and adult volunteers.

4-H has three primary program areas: science, engineering and technology: healthy living; and citizenship.

4-H is the only youth development program with direct access to technological advances from University Research!

Youth learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through more than 1,000 projects with topics as varied as rocketry, GPS mapping, computer game design, public speaking, photography, nutrition and community service.

4-H programs are offered through community clubs; school-based, after-school and camp settings; and U.S. military installations worldwide.

Studies show that 4-H members do better in school, and are more motivated to help others, feel safe to try new things, achieve a sense of self-esteem, and develop lasting friendships.

More than 60 million young people across America have been 4-H members since the 4-H Youth Development program began in 1902. Famous alumni include Al Gore, Faith Hill, David Letterman along with 14 governors, 33 university presidents and chancellors, 31 CEO’s and four astronauts are a few of the alumni.

Youth can join this organization by enrolling at www.shelbycounty4h.com and by calling the Purdue Extension office of Shelby County at 317-392-6460. Deadline for 2014 is May 15th.
