4-H encourages diverse youth groups to develop their unique skills and talents to their fullest potential. Young people participate in 4-H through many activities. “Learning by doing” through hands-on activities to develop and strengthen life skills. It is a unique blend of government, private business, and volunteers working together to broaden the horizons of Bradley County’s young people.
The following are opportunities for you to get involved, increase your knowledge, and have lots of fun. You can even win ribbons and compete at the Regional and State Levels in several activities. You can pick one or as many as you would like to enter.
