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.
