What is 4-H?
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished through "hands-on" learning experiences that focus on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.

Who is eligible?
All youth, grades K-12, residing in Cobb County may join 4-H.  4th graders, 5th graders, and middle school students may attend meetings at their school where 4-H clubs exist.

When and where are 4-H meetings held?
During the school year, 4th graders, 5th graders, and middle school students may attend meetings at their school where 4-H clubs exist. 4th and 5th grade club meetings are during school hours within the classroom. 4-H club meetings are educational, focusing on science and public speaking skills. There are several 4-H clubs active at many elementary schools in Cobb County. Three middle schools have before school 4-H club meetings that focus on healthy living. 4-H County Council meetings are held monthly at the 4-H office for grades 4th-12th. County Council meetings include engaging activities, leadership experiences, and community service opportunities. To program for our K-3rd grade 4-H'ers, Cobb County 4-H has a Home School Cloverbuds program that meets during the day and a General Cloverbuds program that meets in the evening monthly.
