4-H Youth Development
Welcome to Russell County 4-H!
Christy A. Martin
Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development
4-H is the largest youth organization in America. It involves young people ages 9-18. 4-H members participate in club meetings and "learn by doing" in a variety of project areas. Some of these projects include speech and demonstrations, fashion revue, livestock, electric, woodcraft, photography, foods, and home environment. Each member can participate in the project area(s) of their choice. These projects promote leadership and build self-esteem.
4-H provides opportunities for participation in organized 4-H clubs, project groups, 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camp, county fair, and other special activities.
4-H provides specific educational programs that children may not receive in the school system, such as an appreciation for how we get our food, hunter safety certification classes, and an understanding of the American economy and the way local businesses operate.
