WELCOME TO DOUGLAS COUNTY 4-H!
4-H is combined with the Youth Development Program at the
University of Wisconsin-Extension.
So, when you participate in 4-H, you are part of the UW System!
Douglas County Cooperative Extension 4-H Programs give young people a chance to learn new skills, gain self confidence, and contribute to their communities. 4-H Youth Development faculty and staff create real-world experiences that teach leadership and citizenship skills.The four “H’s” represent the four points of the pledge: clearer thinking (head), greater loyalty (heart), larger service (hands), and better living (health).
How old do you need to be to join 4-H? Youth in grades K-2 are eligible for the Cloverbuds project. Regular membership is open to youth in grades 3 through one year following high school graduation (we call this grade 13). 4-H is open to any youth eligible for 4-H membership regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital or parental status.
Project Report Douglas County 2016 contains the projects that are available in Douglas County. The list contains some 70 different statewide project areas and descriptions of projects. Besides 4-H projects, you can get involved in 4-H events throughout the year.
You can learn more about these activities in our 4-H Handbook and in our monthly Newsletters.
