The Union County 4-H Program is open to boys and girls ages 5-18, as of January 1. In Union County, there are 9 different clubs in which a member has the opportunity to join. It is recommended that a member choose to join one or two clubs. Each club has its own dynamics, such as meeting time, meeting place, frequency of meetings, and projects it offers. Please visit "Our Clubs" to find out more information about each club.

4-H Projects

As part of the 4-H program requirements, a member must complete a 4-H project and keep a record on that project. There are over 200 projects and activities for a 4-H member to choose from. Although there are many projects, 4-H members are encouraged to pick a few projects, and do those projects well; quality, not quantity.
