The 4-H Youth Program is looking for adult volunteers (age 21 and older) to start up 4-H clubs in their local communities.

The 4-H program is designed for both boys and girls ages 5-18, broken down to Cloverbuds, Juniors and Seniors.

The Cloverbud program is specifically for boys and girls in kindergarten through third grade (ages 5 to 7) and is built on cooperative learning, rather than competitive activities. Juniors (ages 8-13) and Seniors (ages 14-18) work on projects.

All new 4-H leaders will be provided with an orientation training, resource materials, activity curriculum, and support.

For more information about 4-H or to sign up to become a 4-H club leader, contact 4-H Educator Angelica Paredes by emailing angelica@umext.umass.edu.
