Mayes County 4-H
Welcome to the Mayes County 4-H Program. The 4-H mission is to help young people become motivated, productive and contributing members of society as they “learn by doing.” 4-H members, parents and volunteers are encouraged to communicate with the 4-H staff. We are always happy to help you.
What is 4-H?
4-H is the largest youth organization in the nation, open to youth grades 3rd - 12th grades and administered by the OSU Extension. Through 4-H, youth learn valuable life skills that enable them to grow into productive citizens. Through hands-on learning opportunities in many different areas of interest, youth develop critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, set and achieve goals, and learn responsibility.
Although 4-H is deeply rooted in agricultural practices, its not cows, plows and sows anymore. Today's 4-H youth can still be found showing steers, but also using GPS units, teaching others about drug and alcohol prevention, traveling, taking photographs and giving speeches.
- 4-H Membership = Any boy or girl between 9-19 years of age.
- Cloverbud Membership = Any boy or girl between 5-8 years of age. Cloverbud members may participate in any non-competitive activities on a local or county basis.
