4-H enrollment now open

Now through Oct. 15 is open registration for 4-H projects. 4-H Youth Development helps young people reach their full potential as competent, confident and caring leaders of character who are connected to others and contribute to their communities.

Following enrollment, youth participate in projects which they are interested in. In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that youth will use throughout their lives, such as identifying sparks, desiring knowledge, setting goals, self-reflection, adapting to new situations, communicating and responding to the needs of others.

Whether youth are building rockets or robots, raising companion dogs or growing vegetables, 4-H gives young people the skills they need to thrive and succeed throughout their lives.

How will you inspire the next generation? Do you have a skill to share with today’s youth? 4-H is looking to expand project offerings in many areas and is seeking adult volunteers to lead projects, which requires just two hours a month.

4-H youth are a living breathing, culture-changing revolution for doing the right thing; breaking through obstacles and pushing our country forward by making a measurable difference right where they live. Learn how you can Join the Revolution of Responsibility at ucanr.org/centralsierra4-H or contact the 4-H desk at University of California Cooperative Extension, El Dorado County, at (530) 621-5503 or [email protected]
