What is 4-H?
4-H stands for head, heart, hands, and health, which represents education, community service, projects, and physical fitness.
When you join, you can pick what projects you want to join. (See the Project link above for a full list of the projects we currently offer). Throughout the school year, you will, depending on the project, learn more about it, practice it, or use it to make something. Near the end of the 4-H year, many members exhibit their piece, demonstrate their ability, or enter in some sort of contest at the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton.
Events and Community Service
Besides projects, there are many events and community service activities to take part in. They can be found in the calendar, and are also mentioned at club meetings. Each month, we try to have at least one community service either at the meeting or as a separate event.
Who can join 4-H?
Youth ages 5-18 are eligible to participate in 4-H. Youth 5 years old or in kindergarten as of January 1 of the program year can enroll as primary members. If you are 9 years old or in the 4th grade by January 1 of the program year, you may sign up as a regular member. Youth remain eligible for membership until the end of the calendar year in which they turn 19 years old.
$53.00 per member per year
Individual Projects may have additional fees that will vary dependent on the project(s) each member chooses to participate in. Please discuss with the project leader upon signing up if any fees are required.
Community Club Meetings
Club meetings from September to June are held on the second Monday of the month at: Tassajara Hills Elementary School~ 4675 Camino Tassajara Road in Danville, CA 94506.
