National 4-H Week – The Start of a Prosperous Year
Saturday, October 1st marks the beginning of the new 4-H year.
Online enrollment opens this weekend for youth to join 4-H in the River Valley District. River Valley District 4-H Youth Development Agent Macy Hynek says they welcome all youth to join from the age of 5 to 18-years-old as of January 1st, 2023.
National 4-H Week runs October 2nd through October 8th. This annual event is designed to highlight the remarkable 4-H youth in our local communities. Hynek says the week gives them the opportunity to showcase the positive impact 4-H makes in a youth's life as well as in our local communities. Throughout the week you may see youth giving back to their local community in events such as 4-H Sunday, Spirit Day, and 48 Hours of 4-H.
4-H is a research-based experience where youth can find their passion in one of the River Valley District's 47 project areas. It's the largest youth development organization in America. 4-H gives youth the skills that will benefit them throughout their life such as self-confidence, independence, resilience, and compassion.
