4-H Youth Development

What is 4-H?

The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society.  This mission is accomplished  through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, food and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.  Johnson County 4-H offers a variety of programs including in-school meetings, competitive events including project achievement and judging teams, shooting sports, community service projects, and 4-H summer camp. 

How can I join?

Any youth in 5th - 12th grade are elegible to join 4-H. 4th graders are elegible to show livestock through 4-H.  All students in the 5th - 8th grade will join 4-H at the beginning of each school year. Youth in the 9th - 12th grade will need to contact the 4-H office to enroll and be included on the Junior and Senior club mailing list. Any other eligible youth may contact the Johnson County 4-H office to receive enrollment information.
