Worcester County 4-H Fair 2018

Arts and Entertainment

July 13, 2018

From: Worcester County 4-H Fair

4--H is the educational youth program of the University of Massachusetts Extension which is based on the concept of learning by doing. Through clubs, afterschoo groups, camp, and other forums, 4-H helps youth learn leadership skills, develop self-confidence, self-esteem, utilize creative thinking, and become more productive community members.

The 4-H program is always in the process of changing and keeping pace with the interests and needs of contemporary youth. The 4-H concept of learning allows both youth and adults to learn at their own pace while acquiring new skills in areas that interest them. Financial support for the 4-H program is provided through a combination of membership fees, volunteer fundraising and private donations and limited state and federal tax dollars. 4-H offers membership to all boys and girls, ages 5-18 years old. A traditional 4-H club consists of four or more children and at least one screened adult volunteer leader. Each club selects one or more projects to focus on. Many schools, neighborhood centers, and libraries also host or offer 4-H programs.
