4-H projects are the educational experiences that youth who are members of 4-H participate in. Typically, all projects must consist of at least five learning experiences that last from 30 minutes to one hour and include the assistance of an adult or leader.
It is almost impossible to list all of the project areas you can get involved in. If you are interested in something that is not listed, contact us and we will determine what resources are available to help you get started!

Currently, there are over 20 clubs in Montgomery County. Every 4-H club is different, so they may not offer the project that you are interested in. We recommend visiting a couple of club meetings to see which club best fits your expectations. To get a list of clubs, please contact the Extension Office at (936) 539-7823.
4-H members can also participate in self-directed projects which are not listed as long as they meet the requirements for a project. They should choose the major category heading for their project enrollment for that self-directed project.
