What is 4-H? 4-H is a national organization that provides experiences that show young people how to learn by doing. In Marquette County, the focus is on project-based participation. Youth chose a topic they want to learn more about (photography, cooking, community service) and create a project based on that interest. How can adults be involved? We are always looking for active adults that can partner with 4-H youth to help them learn a new skill! Why should you join? If you are looking interactive way to learn outside of school, on topics you really love, with creative control of the entire process then 4-H is a great option.
