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.
