SO what is 4- H you ask? 4-H is kids and adult volunteers all over Minnesota learning, growing and having fun in 4- H Clubs and 4-H Adventures. 4-H is for all kids, whether they live in cities, towns or in the country; whatever their race, religion, gender, orientation or ability. It's part of the University of Minnesota, so programs are based on University research about kids and learning. What's a 4-H Club? 4-H Clubs give kids a feeling of '99 Buick Century Sedan s6,985.o belonging and a chance to learn about things that interest them. The club experience is long term (a year or more), fun, intense and has a big impact on members. 4-H Clubs can be formed in communities or neighborhoods; with kids who have the same interests; after hours in schools; or with other organizations in apartment complexes, housing developments, parks or community centers. There are so many project possibilities. Call your local Extension Office for more information. What's a 4-H Adventure? 4-H Adventures let kids try things in fun, short-term events without formally joining clubs.
