The 4-H program is a component of the Cooperative Extension system, which extends resources from land-grant univer- sities to local communities. 4-H is an educational youth organization that belongs to the members, their families, and other interested adults who serve as vol- unteers. Volunteers and parents assist 4-H members in developing life skills through meaningful programs and opportunities. Professional leadership for the Pike Coun- ty 4-H program is provided by staff of Pur- due Extension. Youth enrolled in grades 3-12 are able to enroll in numerous projects and take advan- tage of many 4-H opportunities as 4-H mem- bers for a yearly $20 program fee. Youth enrolled in grades K-2 are able to sign up as a "Mini" for only a $5 yearly pro- gram fee! WHY SHOULD I JOIN? A recent gallop poll showed: • More than 40 percent of kids feel unpre- pared to lead because they lack confidence and experience leading. • 80 percent of young people feel confi- dence is the skill they lack most, citing it as a critical skill strong leaders possess. • More than 45 percent of kids believe that programs to build confidence and be- ing encouraged to help lead regularly would help them grow as leaders. The 4-H program inspires confidence, de- velops responsibility and teaches compas- sion – critical traits of a great leader, wheth- er leading in their personal life, their com- munity or their career. HOW DO I JOIN? To enroll in 4-H, go to the website, http:// and follow the instructions. If you do not have access to a computer, or if you need assistance, contact the Purdue Extension office.
