  • 4-H Parent Handbook
    The purpose of this booklet is to help you learn more about 4-H and how to help your child have a positive experience in 4-H. Use this booklet as a tool to familiarize yourself with the 4-H youth development program. As your family goes through the 4-H year, you may find you have questions about specific activities or events, or expectations of your family. Please be sure to keep the lines of communication open with your 4-H club/group volunteer leader(s) and/or contact your local University of Illinois Extension office.

  • Quality Assurance and Ethics Certification
    Starting in 2013 all 4-H Youth enrolled in a livestock project area will be required to complete this online course one time in order to stay enrolled in a livestock project area. The Quality Assurance and Ethics Certification has been developed to review what is expected of youth when preparing for and exhibiting animals in competition. Once you complete this program, you will earn your certificate of completion for the Quality Assurance and Ethics Certification requirement and will be eligible to show your livestock and stay in your 4-H project area.
