The purpose of 4-H is to develop young people into productive and responsible members of society.
In Shenandoah County, most 4-H’ers belong to a community club where they elect officers, learn to conduct meetings, choose a 4-H project to complete, plan programs, and participate in community service and other activities. A network of adult volunteers work with the 4-H clubs. Parents are welcome to volunteer their time and talents.
