What is 4-H?
The Georgia 4-H program is part of the educational outreach of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. 4-H is the largest youth organization in the world.
Today, 4-H is urban and suburban as well as rural. The program teaches life skills such as public speaking. Although proud of its beginnings as corn and tomato clubs, 4-H has evolved over the years to teach about computers, recycling, photography, dog care, teamwork and many other topics relative to Rockdale County's youth.
Below are some of 4-H's most broadly useful resources from the Georgia 4-H website. Please contact us for more information about participating in any of these programs through this county office.
