Impact Story

Ella B

Making me sit through 4-H meetings when I was younger was the best decision my mother ever made. The program and its many opportunities has provided me with a second family, and has taught me everything school doesn't.

Impact Story

Benjamin K

My dad bought me a calf when I was 6 years old. This sparked my interest in 4-H and showing animals. Since then, 4-H has truly changed my life with opportunities and experiences that I wouldn't have gotten anywhere else.

I joined 4-H when I was 6 years old and ever since I have met a bunch of new people from all over Wisconsin. 4-H has really helped me improve my leadership and public speaking skills. 4-H is a very cool experience that everyone needs to try.

I started 4-H when I was 9 years old. Some of my best memories from my youth come from my experiences in 4-H club meetings, softball, youth exchange and learning to show rabbits. I also learned important life skills.

I did not grow up in 4-H, but joined when our oldest daughter was 6 years old. She joined as a Cloverbud and I joined as a leader. That was 19 years ago.

Impact Story

Libby W

I joined 4-H in 5th grade as a shy little girl. Progressively, I realized 4-H was my passion, and now I'm a confident, outgoing girl who has been traveling with 4-H, a youth leader, a member of LC, and so much more!

Impact Story

Lillie C

When I was little, my parents signed me up because my mom had grown up in it. Without 4-H I would not be half the person I am today.
