4-H Youth Development

4-H has been serving youth for more than 100 years! Although it began as a Corn Club for boys and a Tomato Club for girls, 4-H now teaches a more diverse range of topics from leadership to communications to community service and citizenship. 4-H Clubs can found around the world today!

Paulding County 4-H is offered generally offered for youth in a "club" format in grades 5-8 and after-school in grades 9-12.

-  4-H classroom clubs for 5th graders are found in all Paulding County public elementary schools. The meetings start in August where the students learn public speaking skills and science lessons tied to the Georgia Standards of Excellence.
-  Middle School 4-H Junior clubs for grades 6-8, meet in each of the nine middle schools once a month starting in September; most are at the beginning of the day.
-  Senior 4-H'ers in grades 9-12 have monthly club meeting at the 4-H/Extension office. Additional events may be offered to provide other opportunities
