What is a 4-H Project?
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.
We have details on some of the popular projects in Montgomery County available by clicking the link below:

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. Contact us and we will determine what resources are available to help you get started!
Sometimes a project that the member is interested in is not currently being done in the club they are in or interested in joining. The member may still complete that project, but typically, their parent will become the project leader for them.
When deciding on which project(s) to get involved with, it is important to take the time to research it. Some questions a member may ask him/herself are:
- Do I like this project?
- Can I complete this project?
- How much will this project cost?
- Do I have space and equipment for this project?
- How can this project help me grow?
- What areas can I move into?
- When is this project complete?
- Can my parents help me with this project?
