WHAT DO 4-H MEMBERS DO?


They raise prize winning livestock, grow delicious vegetables, produce and perform dramatic productions, bake amazing cakes and cookies, help in the community, and participate in (and win!) robotics competitions. Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four Hs in 4-H, and these values are present in all our projects and activities: Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.

About 4-H


Some background on us!

History

Since its humble beginnings more than 100 years ago, 4-H has grown to become the nation’s largest youth development organization. The 4-H idea is simple: help young people and their families gain the skills they need to be proactive forces in their communities and develop ideas for a more innovative economy. That idea was the catalyst to begin the 4-H movement, and those values continue today. As one of the first youth development organizations in America, 4-H opened the door for young people to learn leadership skills and explore ways to give back. 4-H revolutionized how youth connected to practical, hands-on learning experiences while outside of the classroom.

4-H in San Bruno

The San Bruno 4-H club is very active about participating in community events. We can be seen at Operation Clean Sweep in May, the Posy Parade in June, and Food and Clothing drives throughout the year. We also encourage all our members to exhibit project accomplishments in the San Mateo County Fair every June and many of our projects (be they animal exhibits, or clothing or artwork) can be seen on display in the large animal barn and 4-H exhibit hall.

How Does 4-H Work?

The San Bruno 4-H Club has a small farm and club house in San Bruno. The club offers hands-on projects and activities, directed by adult volunteers, for youth ages 5 to 19. Each youth member enrolls in the projects they are interested in, plus they attend monthly general meetings, fun days, farm clean-up days, and other organized club activities. A unique aspect of 4-H is that the club is run by the youth officers and members, so members learn leadership, good citizenship, and active participation in governance.

Not Just Cows and Cake!


While poultry, gardening, and rabbits are very popular projects, the San Bruno 4-H club has very much more to offer! 4-H has embraced the development of new technologies, and has incorporated new projects and curriculum to reflect these new areas of expertise. The San Bruno 4-H club offers projects like sewing, crafts, and web design!
