Welcome to 4-H in Schuyler County!
4-H creates opportunities for youth to develop skills,
leadership abilities, and practical knowledge through observing, doing, and
living. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, 4-H clubs are not meeting in person,
but we are carrying forward by offering workshops online.
Our Facebook page provides the most up-to-date
information on programs and events. We have virtual programs for Cloverbuds
(ages 5-7) and for young people ages 8-16. Please take a look at what we are
offering and try out robotics, science experiments, nature exploration, and
more! Anyone may join in – there is no need to join a specific club.
You can read more about 4-H, its history and philosophy on
this site, and you can find ways that you and your family can become involved.
If you are interested in finding out how to join in the fun, please email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 607-535-7161.
