Coles County 4-H
4-H is a youth organization open to boys and girls who are ages 8-18 as of September 1 of the current 4-H year. The 4-H year is September 1 through August 31. 4-H is a great way to make new friends, become a part of your community, get real life experience, and take part in fun activities tailored to your interest! There are over 200 project areas to choose from!
If a child is not yet 8 years old, she/he may join a Colverbud group. Cloverbuds are 4-H clubs specifically designed for youth ages 5-7, as of September 1. Cloverbud projects are leader-guided and generally require minimal reading and writing skills.
Contact the Coles County Extension Office at 217-345-7034 for more information on joining 4-H and clubs in your area.
