4-H offers youth an opportunity to explore and learn in a wide variety of content areas, everything from arts and crafts to science and healthy living to communications. If a 4-H member has an interest in exploring it, 4-H can provide an opportunity to learn about it. In 4-H we refer to our content areas as “Projects” and the volunteer responsible for each project is called a “Superintendent.” Information and requirements for each project area are provided below.
