Jefferson County 4-H
What is a 4-H Club?
A 4-H club is a group of young people and adults who meet regularly for fun and learning. Clubs are usually made up of families from a community and often formed around schools, churches or community centers. Most clubs hold monthly meetings attended by members and their parents. Club members elect officers who lead the group and the meetings. An adult club leader advises the officers. The meetings usually last less than two hours. The time is equally divided among club business, recreation and educational programs. A well-organized 4-H club meeting provides opportunities for every member to be involved.
The mission of the 4-H Youth Development Program is to provide Oklahoma youth, families, and communities with educational programs that will create environments for diverse audiences of youth and adults to reach their fullest potential by developing and enhancing skills for living.
