BEDFORD – It doesn’t matter where you live or what you want to be when you grow up. In 4-H, you can make friends, have fun, and try new things with the help of caring adults. Whatever your interests, there is a 4-H experience for you. Explore your path through hands-on projects like robotics and computers, cooking and eating healthy, raising and taking care of animals, performing arts, discovering nature, and helping your community.
The Indiana 4-H enrollment deadline is fast approaching. Lawrence County Families are urged to enroll by January 15, 2022. 4-H is a premier source of enjoyable, educational programs to help young people reach their full potential. 4-H is the largest youth organization in the nation, and there is a place for you with many different clubs, trips, scholarships, and other opportunities available.
Enrollment is easy with the 4HOnline system, https://v2.4honline.com.
Extension educators want to help new families learn the opportunities that exist with 4-H, so they are invited to attend New Member Orientation, which will be available when they join 4-H. We know 4-H can be a little confusing with all of the opportunities available, and we are here to help. Indiana 4-H is the state’s largest youth development program for grades K-12, reaching more than 200,000 youth in all 92 counties.
