Consider Becoming a 4-H Leader

Posted: May 30, 2012

The Pike County 4-H youth development program is looking to the community to help expand its scope. 4-H relies on adults to guide 4-H members as they work on projects and participate in activities. The leader helps the members reach their potential. No special skills are required to be a 4-H adult leader. Leaders are supported by Penn State Extension with training, guidance and curriculum. All that is really required is a genuine interest in youth.

4-H is recognized as one of the foremost youth organizations in the country, reaching 6.5 million youth in all 50 states. It is the largest youth-serving program in the world. 4-H members, age 5-19, learn by doing. More than 150 projects are available to choose from, including gardening, sewing, pet care, rocketry, insects, careers, wildlife, raising large animals, cooking, creating Web sites, babysitting and much more!
