Douglas County 4-H Quick Facts

4-H is a worldwide youth development program for children between the ages of 5 and 18. Youth who participate in 4-H develop tools to succeed in life —confidence, compassion and the connections to caring adults helping guide community contributions. 4-H is dedicated to positive youth development and helping youth step up to the challenges in a complex and changing world. 4-H is dedicated to helping cultivate the next generation of leaders and tackling the nation’s top challenges such as the shortage of skilled professionals, maintaining our global competitiveness, encouraging civic involvement and becoming a healthier society.

4-H 101 & 102

4-H 101 ~ Discover 4-H

Throughout January 2020 we presented the Douglas County 4-H 101 Class in Highlands Ranch, Parker, and Castle Rock!  They were all amazing events with great turnout, however, we know not everyone could make it or retain all the information! (It’s a lot, we know!) So please find this years presentation here and always let us know if you have any questions!

4-H 102 ~ 4-H Projects Explained

Throughout the month of February 2020 we presented the Douglas County 4-H 102 Class in Highlands Ranch, Parker, and Castle Rock!  We had so much fun presenting what 4-H projects are, what a wide variety of options we have, and how to go about choosing and completing a project!  Similar to the 101 class, there was a lot of information and some great tidbits shared by our current 4-H members, families, and leaders who attended the meetings!  Please find this years presentation below as a place to start and always feel free to reach out to the extension office with any questions you might have!  We know it can be confusing at first, but we are always here to help!
