What is 4-H? 4-H clover.jpg
 
Young people participate in 4-H through clubs, special interest groups, after-school programs, camps and many other activities.  "Learning by Doing" through hands-on activities and community involvement empowers 4-H'ers to develop and strengthen life skills.  Although there are many common activities, each county in Tennessee has its own unique program and areas of emphasis.  4-H is a unique educational program for boys and girls in grades 4th through 12th.  4-H is open to everyone and provides equal opportunities in all programs.

History of 4-H
4-H in Tennessee begain in the early 1900's as an educational program to help youth in rural areas develop skills in agriculture and home economics.  What began as a Corn Club for boys and a Canning Club for girls, soon expanded into many areas of agriculture and farm family activities.  As the youth development program of the Univerisity of Tennessee Extension Service, 4-H embodies a unique blending of county and community resources with research and teaching of Tennessee's land-grant university.

Historically, membership in 4-H evoked images of farming activities, livestock, cooking, canning and county fairs.  However, over the years, 4-H has broadened to include all youth whether they live on a farm, a rural non-farm area, and a town or suburban area.  Today 4-H includes career fairs, service projects and involvement in the community, character building and much more.
