Being a 4-H Club member provides the most well-rounded 4-H experience for youth ages 5-18! As a 4-H club member, youth develop leadership skills, public speaking skills, and social skills as they “learn by doing” by participating in monthly club meetings, community service events, citizenship projects, club outings, and fun activities!

4-H Clubs are organized in communities throughout Henderson County and are led by parent/community volunteers who have been screened and trained by Extension personnel. Since 4-H is a family program, parents and guardians are encouraged to be actively involved.

Joining a 4-H Club is easy and free!

Look at the list of local clubs and see which one fits your schedule, age, and interests. To sign up, you must first contact 4-H Agent Hannah Peeler.
