4-H: A Remarkable Youth Development Program

Parents looking for a safe, fun, educational opportunity for their children to learn leadership, citizenship, decision making, and communication skills need look no further than Randolph County 4-H!

Established over 100 years ago, 4-H programs were designed to teach youth skills that would help them become contributing members of their communities. 4-H clubs meet monthly with at least five members and one or more adult volunteer leaders.

Resources from the two land grant systems, North Carolina State University and North Carolina A&T State Unviersity, support 4-H members in their quest to learn and grow in a variety of subjects.

From aerospace to woodworking, clothing to vet science, horse to small pets, photography to computer science, youth may explore many subjects that may assist them in finding a career path.

Homeschool families have used 4-H juried curriculum for many years to support the learning that happens in the home!

Randolph County 4-H has openings for youth 5 - 19 years of age interested in joining a club. Simply call our Cooperative Extension Office at 336-318-6000 to inquire about a club in your neighborhood. We are also interested in visiting with adult volunteers who have the time and availability to organize a new club.

Randolph County 4-H provides training and project support for an adult working with a group of youth.

Making the best better for young people in Randolph County, 4-H, A Remarkable Program!
