In 4-H, youth are the leaders. They're learning, teaching, serving their communities and gaining skills for the future—and having fun doing it! Given the right opportunities, they will be the ones to make our world a better place and create a positive impact. What if you were one of them?

Join 4-H today!

Henry and Stark Counties 4-H has community clubs youth and teens can join. These clubs meet on a regular (monthly) basis in cities and towns across the county throughout the year.  At 4-H Club meetings members elect officers, share projects, give demonstrations, go on special outings, do community service projects, share snacks, and have a great time meeting new friends.  Throughout the year 4-H also offer a variety of Special Interest (SPIN) clubs.  These meet over 6 weeks and cover one topic such as dog obedience, sewing, horses, archery, shooting sports, photography.

If you are interested in joining 4-H, contact Jennifer Peterson, 4-H Program Coordinator at (309) 932-3447 or email her at
