4-H Youth Development

What is 4-H?

A club in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change! Georgia 4-H, a partner in public education, is youth and adults learning, growing, and working together to experience and accomplish the extraordinary.

How Do I Join 4-H?

In Bartow County, all youth in 4th through 12th grade may be 4-H members, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex or disability. 4-H has Club Meetings in every Elementary and Middle School in Bartow County. Our High School 4-H'ers meet monthly at our 4-H office. We even have a “Home School Club”. There are no membership fees! (There may be a minimal cost for some activities.)

In order to become a 4-H member, all you need to do is fill out an enrollment card that is given out in the School Club meetings.
