A 4-H club is a place where young people and adults come together to do things that help them:
- Be what they want to be
- Learn about what interests them most
- Share how they feel about their activities and their lives in general
- Do fun things that also help them learn more
- Relate to peers and the adults in their lives in positive ways
Michigan 4-H youth programs are open to boys and girls aged 5 to 19. Although 4-H provides learning materials, events and training in a variety of program areas, the opportunities for 4-H involvement is only restricted by participants’ interests and imaginations. Club and group leaders are encouraged to survey the young people they work with to determine what projects, ideas and activities to pursue.
