4-H year starts Sept. 1; early enrollment begins Aug. 15

COLLEGE STATION – Enrollment for the 2017-2018 4-H year starts Aug. 15 with the official statewide kickoff Sept. 1, said Dr. Toby Lepley, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service statewide program specialist, 4-H Youth Development, College Station.


“4-H allows youth to explore their path for a strong future,” Lepley said. “It doesn’t matter where they live or what they want to be when they grow up, in 4-H young people can make friends, have fun and try new things with the help of caring adults.”


Lepley said youth in 4- H gain lifelong skills in areas such as communication, teamwork, leadership, decision-making and organization. In Texas, youth in kindergarten through second grade can join Clover Kids. Youth in third to 12th grades and those 8 years old before Sept. 1 can join 4-H. More than 550,000 youth in all 254 counties of the state participate in Texas 4-H each year.
