July 27, 2022 | View PDF
4-H focuses on growing confident, capable and caring youth through science, citizenship and healthy living projects. Projects provide hands on learning in over 200 different project areas. 4-H has come a long way since its national beginning in 1902 and now offers a wide variety of projects including animal science, aerospace, robotics, woodworking, entomology, shooting sports, sport fishing, babysitting, sewing, quilting, gardening, leathercraft, photography, cooking, leadership and many more. Along with the projects, 4-H members attend many events and activities that have an emphasis on citizenship, service learning and leadership. All the members in Richland County practice service learning by completing community service projects at the club and county level. Youth also attend local, regional, state and national workshops and events that aid them in learning and developing leadership skill throughout the 4-H year. Currently, Richland County 4-H has 243 members, 101 registered volunteers and 10 community 4-H clubs.
