4-H Youth Development

Georgia 4-H Mission Statement

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, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.

What is 4-H? How do I join?

Join 4-H as a member or a leader by contacting the Coweta County Extension Office at 770-254-2620. University of Georgia staff can help you pursue involvement in Coweta County 4-H and you will have access to a world of opportunities in 4-H. Select from more than 50 project areas, participate in any of hundreds of events, apply for scholarships, or travel around the world. Your county extension 4-H office is the door of opportunity for you.

Membership guidelines for students: Any person, regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, or disability may enroll as a 4-H member.

Youth who are nine years of age and have not reached their nineteenth birthday on or before January 1, of the current year may enroll in 4-H clubs and groups.

Adult Volunteer leaders are welcome and needed in all county programs. A registration form and certification process is available in all county extension offices.
