Kentucky 4-H/Youth Development Education is a recognized community leader in developing youth to become productive citizens and serves as a catalyst for positive change to meet the needs of a diverse and changing society.  Green County 4-H works with over 1,000 local youth annually in various ways:  clubs, project groups, workshops, day and overnight camps.  All Green County youth are welcome to be involved.  We are continually looking for ways to expand the program, and adults who may be considering volunteering should contact our office for possibilities.  The links to the left will provide more information about joining 4-H and being involved.  We look forward to having you involved in a future program.  

 Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.  Garrison Keillor, U.S. author. Leaving Home, "Easter" (1987)

Signup for the New 4-H Program Year

Due to limited access to our school clubs, youth may signup initially with 4-H at this link.  At a later time, we will forward the official member enrollment forms via mail or distribute them through their clubs.  Completing this online survey is FREE and does not obligate you to any programs.  It provides us a way to understand the youth's interest and prepare clubs that meet their needs.  If you have any questions, please contact the 4-H office.  Register for 4-H Here.  

New 4-H Online Clubs

Must Register online by September 30, 2020

NEW 4-H Online Clubs, Must Register by September 30, 2020

As a way to offer 4-H programs with social distancing, Kentucky 4-H is starting a new set of virtual clubs. Youth can participate from their homes with internet access. These will be statewide clubs led by 4-H Agents or specialist.  Youth may sign up for multiple clubs if they are interested.

Youth must register by September 30 by 5:00 pm CDT. Space may be limited so registering early is important. There will be no late registrations. Once the registration closes, the leaders will communicate with families. Youth who complete at least six hours of the projects will receive special recognition at the end of the 2021 program year. Most clubs will meet once monthly with the first meeting starting in October.
