4-H Youth Development

School Club Meetings

4-H holds monthly club meetings in the 5th grade classrooms at Mountain View and Unity Elementary. Monthly club meetings are held in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classrooms at Flint River Academy.  These meetings are held during the school day. Middle School Meetings are once a month during club day. A curriculum correlated to the Georgia Performance Standards is used for club meetings.

All 5th graders in the county are enrolled as Cloverleaf members of Meriwether County 4-H. 4-H'ers will bring home monthly newsletters with information about upcoming activities.

Any 4th-12th grader that does not attend these schools but is interested in participating in 4-H activities should contact the 4-H Office.
