Page 16 Pre-Fair Supplement October 3, 2018 Walsh County 4-H Youth Development programming in Walsh County offers opportunities for youth ages 5-18 to experience projects, club meetings, communityservice and a variety of events and activities while having fun, meeting new friends and learning new skills. Youth choose project areas of interest to them and learn life skills such as responsibility, decision-making, public speaking and leadership. Adult volunteer leaders teach projects to youth using the "learn-by-doing" method. 4-H is the youth development program of the North Dakota State University Extension. What's the point of 4-H? Great kids are those that exemplify the four H's, and our mission is to make that happen. HEAD - Make sound decisions, set goals and stick with them until they are achieved, and have practical skills needed to lead a productive and fulfilling life. HEART - Act with integrity and accountability, and help others become their best. HANDS - Put the needs of the community before those of themselves, and serve others. HEALTH - Actively take care of their minds and bodies. How does 4-H work? Join a club! 4-H dubs are a group of families/volunteers who generally meet monthly. These meetings give youth opportunities to share their project work (speak), plan community sewice actMties, and practice running meetings. They have many "sub-clubs" for individual projects, led by adults or teens within the dub. Undertake projects. Members choose from a wide range of individual projects, based on their interests and the availability of a knowledgeable adult in the community to serve as a mentor/leader (matching facilitated through dubs). Through these projects, members set goals, leam the skills needed to achieve goals, and exhibit/demonstrate their skills at events like county fairs, speaking contests and other competitions.
