4-H is a federal program cooperatively developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Extension system, and local communities. The mission of all 4-H programs is to help young people become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society by learning practical skills and developing leadership potential.
Come “learn by doing”—the motto of our 4-H club members! As part of a team, you'll choose topics of interest to investigate through projects, presentations, and study. Currently four teams are pursuing their interest in horses, insects, sewing, and calves. All members also belong to a community service team, giving back to the Shelburne community through various projects. The crew meets weekly at the Farm, which donates the space and staff time of 4-H co-coordinator, Susie Marchand.
