Projects provide the basis of the 4-H program by offering various educational experiences. Carrying out a project will help the member "learn by doing" as well as learn "why" things happen the way they do.
Project selection is optional for Nebraska 4-H members, with the exception of horse and shooting sports projects. However, you are encouraged to officially enroll in projects they are interested in. The project enrollment process may help youth learn valuable management skills like goal-setting, record-keeping, planning and organizing.
For more information on the projects that are available please see 4-H Projects.
Check with the Extension Office if you would like a copy of the project manuals.
