Chester County 4-H Clubs

4-H clubs provide opportunities for youth to learn subject matter and life skills while working with caring adults and other youth. Once youth are 4-H members, they become eligible for a variety of benefits of belonging to 4-H,  including awards, trips, and special events. Of course, it's meant to be fun  for the kids and the leaders too!
