Here Are The Answers - 4-H Club work is d kind of training in which rural youth learns better ways of farming and homemaking, better ways of working together in groups and on community matters, better ways of living.

It makes for good homes, good citizens and a cultural rural life. The 4-H Club program provides an opportunity for activity, adventure and achievement.
