4-H Youth Development



What is 4-H?

4-H is an educational program focusing on leadership, citizenship, public speaking and lifeskills.  We are the youth program of UGA Extension.   

4-H began as a Boys Corn Club and a Girls Tomato Canning Club; however, 4-H today teaches computer skills, recycling, photography, nutrition, violence prevention, teamwork, and many other topics.

Who is eligible?

Any youth, ages 9-19 (grades 4-12), may join.  Liberty County 4-H has more than 1,000 members.

Where does 4-H meet?

Many Liberty County 5th and 6th grade students participate in monthly in-school club meetings. However, we also host after school club meetings.

  •  1st-3rd grade students: Third Tuesday of each month 5:00 - 6:30 pm. $10.00 registration fee required.
  •  4th-6th grade students: Third Tuesday of each month 5:00 - 6:30 pm.
  •  7th-12th grade students: First Tuesday of each month 4:30-6:00 pm.

All after-school meetings are held at the Extension Office located at 100 South Main Street, Suite 1200 in Hinesville. Meetings for the 2016/17 school year will resume in the Fall.

How much does it cost?

There is no charge for general membership. Optional activities and some specialty clubs may have a nominal charge.

What about parents?

Parents are an important part of 4-H activities and are always welcome.
