In 4-H, members work on fun projects, learn new skills, take part in club meetings and activities with friends, learn to present educational demonstrations and have fun at parties, camps, fairs and picnics!  4-H is for all youth, urban, suburban or rural and accommodates a wide variety of interests and needs.  The 4-H year begins October 1st and ends September 30th.

To get enrolled in a community club, you first have to choose one.  We have about 16 different clubs spread out throughout Pueblo County.

Call the volunteer club leader and ask questions like:
 Do you have room for additional members?
 Where do you meet?
 When do you meet?
 What are the ages of the members in the club?
 What projects does your club offer?
 Are there any additional club requirements?
Select the club most compatible with your family.

Next you will need to choose the projects you plan to participate in through your club.  Ask your club leader for help in deciding which projects will be a good fit for you. All project information, including tip sheets and e-records, can be found on the Colorado State 4-H Website here:
