Hamilton County 4-H is a community of young people across our area who are learning life skills, leadership, and citizenship that will lead to creating more positive productive citizens. Young people ages 9-19 participate in 4-H through school meetings, special interest community groups, after-school programs, home schools, camps, special educational events, and many other activities.
Membership in 4-H is absolutely FREE and it costs nothing to join 4-H. “Learning by doing” through hands-on activities and community involvement empowers 4-Hers to develop and strengthen life skills. With family interaction in mind, 4-H includes the parent-child relationship and the extended family within any given community. 4-H is a fun, informal, researched based, non-profit organization that looks to broaden the horizons of Tennessee’s young people.
