By 1924, 4-H adopted their logo, the four leaf clover which represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health. Though most people know 4-H to be a program that focuses on agriculture, today's organization focuses on citizenship, healthy living, science, engineering, and technology programs. There are currently over 6.4 members in the United States, from ages 5-21, and approximately 90,000 clubs.
In May 2015, Nassau County celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Cooperative Extension in Nassau County which includes a myriad of services and programs for Nassau County residents, including the local 4-H Program. Project areas for Nassau County's 4-H includes animals, forestry, marine science, cooking, sewing, plants and gardening, robotics, leadership development, public speaking, healthy living, photography, shooting sports, and astronomy. They also offer a summer camp at the beautiful Camp Cherry Lake where program participants will enjoy many activities such as kayaking, swimming, archery, and much more.
Attached is a flyer that provides information on Nassau County's 4-H Program. You may also visit the County Extension's website for more information about Cooperative Extension services and programs offered to our community. Lastly, here is a link to a short video about the importance of 4-H, brought to you by the Florida 4-H Statewide Youth Development Program.
