Bureau County 4-H Open For Enrollment

Bureau County 4-H invites area youth to enroll in the new 4-H year.  4-H, a program of the University of Illinois Extension, is open to all youth ages 8-18 as of September 1st.  Individuals ages 5-7 can find their place in 4-H through a Cloverbud club.  


Illinois 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth organization in Illinois, challenging youth to “learn by doing” with fun, hands-on activities that teach skills for living. Learning opportunities are intentionally designed around four essential concepts necessary for positive youth development: a sense of belonging with a positive group, independence and self-determination, a spirit of generosity toward others, and a wide variety of opportunities to master life challenges. 


For more information on becoming a member please contact Danielle Saletzki, 4-H and Youth Development Program Coordinator, at 815-875-2878 or by e-mail des85@illinois.edu.
