4-H is a Community for ALL Kids!

There are approximately 480 youth in Barron County 4-H.  Our youth are involved in a large variety of projects.  Organized countywide project areas include: Horse, Livestock, Leathercraft, Dog, and Dairy.  Project Discovery Days are held on the 2nd Saturday of the Month, December through April.  Youth also have opportunities to attend camps, perform in the Performance Arts Festival, and to go on state and national trips.  4-H is truly for everyone.

Here’s an excerpt from the National Website to tell you more about 4-H:

In 4‑H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us.

What is 4‑H? 4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. For more than 100 years, 4‑H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better.

Through life-changing 4‑H programs, nearly six million kids and teens have taken on critical societal issues, such as addressing community health inequities, engaging in civil discourse and advocating for equity and inclusion for all.
