4-H has always had prided in teaching children how to work together to achieve a common goal. Houston County 4-H Agents strive every day to give our children guidance and support while helping them find that one thing they are really good at.
Houston County 4-H has grown over the years and because of this, we now have a presence in almost every school in Houston County. Our agents love working with your children and want to do more for them, but there are a lot more children than there are agents. That’s where you come in.
Your child and many others would benefit even more with your help. Volunteering doesn’t mean being the one in charge of an entire program, (unless you want to), but volunteering is a group of people working together to achieve a common goal. That same concept the agents are teaching our children.
4-H wouldn’t exist without dedicated volunteers.
