What is a 4-H project?

A 4-H project is the foundation for learning.  Projects are designed so individuals can progress at their own pace through learning experiences in animal science, human science and environmental science.

Some project examples are Small Pets, Large Animals, Leadership, Robotics, Enviromental and Marksmanship.
