There will be free enrollment for National 4-H Week on the week of Oct. 5-9. You can pick up an enrollment form at the White Pine County Library.

For more than 100 years, 4-H has stood behind the idea that youth is the single strongest catalyst for change. What began as a way to give rural youth new agricultural skills, today has grown into a global organization that teaches a range of life skills.

4-H is dedicated to positive youth development and helping youth step up to the challenges in a complex and changing world. 4-H is dedicated to helping cultivate the next generation of leaders and tackling the nation’s top challenges such as the shortage of skilled professionals, maintaining our global competiveness, encouraging civic involvement, and becoming a healthier society.

According to an in-depth longitudinal study conducted by the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development, Tufts University, 4-H youth are three times more likely to actively contribute to their communities and have higher educational achievement. Join 4-H The Revolution of Responsibility.
