Connecticut 4-H: a great place to learn new things

What’s in it for young people?

When you join 4-H, you choose what interests you. Here are some examples of hands-on opportunities:
• exploring the environment and nature
• growing your own food with all types of gardens
• learning about technology and robotics
• developing photography or drama skills
• caring for animals

You can be part of a club, be an individual member, attend 4-H Camp, go on a field trip or show off your new skills at a 4-H Fair. In the process, you meet new friends, solve problems and make a difference in your neighborhood or even in the world.

Adults like it, too!

Our adult 4-H volunteers enjoy working with young people to gain their full potential. Depending on the talents and time you can contribute, we have a place for you in:
• individual events
• short-term or long term projects with national curriculums
• on-going group activities
• committee membership

You’ll get plenty of training and support from the Connecticut Cooperative Extension Staff and recognition, too. You might even learn new skills while seeing youth grow and develop. Get a new worldview.

Everyone Benefits.

According to research by Tufts University, 4-H youth are 25% more likely to contribute to their families, themselves and their communities, and 41% less likely to engage in risky/problem behavior. Be part of the 4-H world.
