How do you join 4-H?
If you are interested in joining an existing club you may contact the organizational club leader directly by telephone and they will help you get started on your way to becoming a 4-H member in Blair County. If you are a parent or adult interested in starting your own 4-H Club or in becoming a 4-H volunteer, you should contact the Penn State Extension Office in Blair County at 814-793-1815.
Who can join 4-H?
All boys and girls, age 8-18 by January 1 of the current year, living anywhere in the county can join 4-H. Parents are welcomed as helpers at home or as club volunteers.
What does it cost to be a member?
All 4-H club members will pay an annual $10.00 educational materials fee to help cover a portion of the cost of 4-H project books, resource materials, and curriculum development. Additionally, some project areas, such as photography, and livestock, may require a small investment for supplies and equipment. Horse clubs may also require an additional fee.
We live in the city. Can my children still join 4-H?
Yes! 4-H programs are open to all young people, no matter where they live. There are programs in every county in Pennsylvania. Activities appropriate for urban groups include photography, pet care, gardening and more!
