4-H Youth Development

Jackson County 4-H has over 1200 students enrolled into our program.  Students learn life skills, form attitudes that will enable them to become productive and contributing members of society.  This mission is accomplished through hands on learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communications kills, foods and nutrition, heath, energy conservation and citizenship.

Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging that is what Georgia 4-H is about.  As a program of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, 4-H combines federal, state and local expertise and resources.
