4-H

What is 4-H?:

The Georgia 4-H program is part of the educational outreach of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. 4-H is the largest youth organization in the world. Today, 4-H is urban and suburban as well as rural. The program teaches life skills such as public speaking. Although proud of its beginnings as corn and tomato clubs, 4-H has evolved over the years to teach about computers, recycling, photography, dog care, teamwork and many other topics relative to Rockdale County's youth.

Any youth aged 9 through 19 may join 4-H.
