Navajo County 4-H Club

Developing the skills of our young people

4-H Youth Development is part of the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension and the office for Navajo County is located at 748 N. 3rd Street, at the north end of the Navajo County Fairgrounds. 5-8 year old members join Arizona Clover Kids 4-H program. 9 – 19 year olds join the regular club program, if members are 19, they must be 19 years old by January 1st to be eligible for membership.

Our Goals are to develop leadership and responsibility while learning to live and work with others.  Through 4-H you’ll acquire knowledge and skills to explore future careers, and you will achieve a great deal of satisfaction from your work and accomplishments.  Most of all 4-H strives to help develop a positive self-image and good Citizenship.  Our Motto is “To Make the Best Better.” There are many ways to become involved in 4-H.

One way to become involved is through membership in a club program.  Many projects are available.  A project is: 1) planned work in an area of interest to you, 2) guided by a volunteer who is your project leader, 3) aimed at planned objectives that you can attain and measure, and 4) summarized by some form of record keeping.  Community Clubs have many exciting activities also.  The clubs are led by parents and community volunteers who enjoy working with young people.

Contact the Navajo County Cooperative Extension Office at 928-524-6271 to find out how to join 4-H projects and community clubs.
