Florida 4-H is the youth development program of the University of Florida Extension.
The Lee County 4-H Extension provides development opportunities for 4-H youth members through traditional 4-H clubs, school enrichment and special interest programs.
4-H is for everyone. Well, OK we can get a little more specific.
4-H accepts boys and girls from widely diverse groups of social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. There are tons of things to do and "projects" to choose from. The choices are yours to make.
We even need adult volunteers willing to start and lead or mentor some of our groups. There's a role for practically everyone to play in 4-H!
Easy. All adults are welcome to be potential leaders. All you need to start a club is a responsible adult leader and five youth!
Here's the breakdown:
- Age 5- 7 Cloverbuds
- Age 8-10 Juniors
- Age 11-13 Intermediates
- Age 14-18 Seniors
There are a few limits for things like handling large animals and some competitive events, but nothing can stop you from having a lot of fun!
4-H offers young people ages 5-18 an opportunity to share learn and grow through a variety of enjoyable projects and events that help build self-confidence and other critical life skills.
The goal of the Lee County 4-H Program is to build strong productive citizens through the development of the whole person by providing opportunities for enjoyable, hands-on educational programs designed to develop leadership, citizenship and teamwork skills.
4-H reaches hundreds of youth in Lee County each year. Join us! Are You Into It?
