In 4-H, young people learn about topics that interest them! These are referred to as a member’s “projects.” Exploring your interests through 4-H project work is an excellent way to discover new skills and potential careers.
When selecting projects, consider:
- Does it meet the needs and interest of the member?
- Is the project challenging him/her physically, mentally, or educationally?
- How much time does the member have and how much time does the project require?
- What time of the year does most of the activity for the project take place?
- Is the project acceptable to you as parents and does it fit into the family needs and situation?
- How much will the project cost?
- Is adequate space and equipment available?
- Is there an opportunity for ownership and management responsibilities?
- Are there leaders to help with the project, or are you willing to help the member with the project?
