About Us

Over the years, as the challenges facing America's youth have changed, so have the programs offered by 4-H.

4-H began as a club for rural children and was deeply rooted in the agricultural and homemaking activities. Today's 4-H programs are much more than farming and sewing. Georgia 4-H'ers can learn how to create and maintain web sites, speak effectively, lead volunteer efforts, and make smart consumer choices.

4-H youth have opportunities to demonstrate skills on projects they have selected. Yearly work is compiled in a portfolio that teaches skills for an impressive résumé for youth when completing high school. The youth also gather information on their project and present a demonstration each year. As 9th through 12th graders, they have the opportunity to win scholarships and go on to state and national competitions. The Georgia 4-H program teaches leadership, public speaking and teamwork skills and gives youth the chance to make new friends all over the state.

Dougherty 4-H provides all of these opportunities for youth and much more. We are involved in community service projects, camps for active youth in 5th through 12th grade, project workdays, and much, much more.
