4-H Youth Development

Jackson County 4-H has over 1200 students enrolled into our program. 

Students learn life skills, form attitudes that will enable them to become productive and contributing members of society.  This mission is accomplished through hands on learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communications kills, foods and nutrition, heath, energy conservation and citizenship.

Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging that is what Georgia 4-H is about.  As a program of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, 4-H combines federal, state and local expertise and resources.

"After much thought and concern for the health and safety of 4-H staff, volunteers, and our 4-H participants, Georgia 4-H is cancelling all face to face programs, including summer camp, that remain on the June and July 4-H calendar.  This decision was approved by the University of Georgia late yesterday afternoon.  Later today we will send additional information regarding some events that will be moved to a virtual format and others that will be cancelled and not rescheduled.  State 4-H Council and State 4-H Congress will be postponed.  Plans are underway to host an event at Rock Eagle in August that will include state level project achievement competition, state officer election, and recognition of all 2019-2020 Master 4-H Members"

THE 4-H MISSION

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.

Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging, that's what Georgia 4-H is all about. As a program of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension System, 4-H is part of the nationwide Extension network.

4-H'ers are known for sharing their research-based knowledge and technology to people where they live and work. 4-H combines federal, state, and local expertise and resources.
