4-H Clubs/Projects

Would you like to learn to... ...ride a horse? ...train a dog to sit? ...bake a cake? ...shoot a bow? ...cure a ham?   These are just a few of the 4-H Clubs/Projects that are available in Franklin County!  4-H special interest clubs/projects are a fun way to bring kids & teens who want to learn a special skill or hobby together with adults who know how to do the skills/hobby.  A 4-H Club/Project can be started with as few as one adult leader and five youth. The adult provides expertise and guidance. Youth learn the new skill/hobby and run their own club. For adults and youth alike, it creates a fun, “learn-by-doing” experience. 4-H Clubs/Projects usually meet 6 to 12 times during a few months. For example, A horse or cooking club might meet once a week for six weeks or twice a week for three weeks. Many clubs/projects work around the schedules of athletics and other youth activities.  Members of the 4-H clubs elect officers. Each club meeting starts with a short business meeting, led by club officers. Then everybody gets their hands and minds into learning the special interest that brought them together--how to ride, train a dog, bake, etc.  To learn more about the clubs/projects available in Franklin County see our website or contact Leslie Bullock, County Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development at leslie.bullock@uky.edu.

Joining a club/project opens the door to a world of 4-H opportunities!
