4-H Youth Development
Did you know that in 4-H you can build a rabbit den, go on a hike, learn photography, be a news reporter, raise small pets and livestock, safely shoot an air rifle, shot gun, or bow & arrow, learn about other cultures and customs, go to camp and make new friends? Did you know that 4-H is for everyone between the ages of 5 and 21? That’s right, everyone! In 4-H you can learn leadership skills and contribute to your community! Here are just a few exciting activities that Wayne County 4-H members are involved with:
- 4-H Heritage Quilt Trail
- Shooting Sports – air rifle, shot gun, and archery
- Livestock and horses
To learn more about 4-H or how to join, contact Julie Tritz, 4-H & Family Extension Agent at (304) 272-6839.
Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS)
In many ways, CEOS is 4-H for adults! The purpose of CEOS is to provide leadership development, continuing education, and service. CEOS members have lots of fun while learning and giving back back to their community through various service projects. In fact, one recent service project, the “Little Free Libraries” has led to the construction of several little libraries throughout the county. To learn more about these two service projects or how you can join, contact Julie Tritz, 4-H & Family Extension Agent at (304) 272-6839.
