Greene County 4-H Club

4-H is part of the University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension Service in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. 4-H assists young people to acquire knowledge, develop life skills, and form attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society through "hands-on" learning experiences.

In Greene County, youth in grades 4-12 (or ages 9-19 on January 1st of current year) may participate in the 4-H activities. These youth develop many workforce skills while working on their projects, including leadership, citizenship, decision-making, record keeping, public speaking, and teamwork.
