What is 4-H?

4-H is a world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change. 4-H's mission is to assist youth in becoming self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society through "hands on" learning experiences.  

Who Can Join 4-H?

Any youth residing in or attending school in Georgia in 4th - 12th grades may enroll in Georgia 4-H. In Harris County all students in the 5th & 6th grades at Creekside School meet once a month in the classrooms for Cloverleaf Club meetings. At Harris County Carver Middle School and Harris County High School the students have an option at the beginning of each school year to join the 4-H Club. They meet once a month during club day at the school. Harris County 4-H offers a Home School Club that meets once month at our office during the school year. Call for more information at (706) 628-4824. For more eligibility details read the brochure.
