Do you have a hobby, or an interest that you would like to learn about? Learn by doing with your friends in a fun and safe setting. 4-H Clubs bring youth (ages 5 to 19) and adults together to learn everyday life skills with hands-on learning. 4-H clubs can be general in nature where 4-H members learn about many different topics, or they can offer a specific topic of interest such as rabbits, sewing, robotics, gardening, or many others. The limit is your imagination!

More than 300 youth are enrolled in our Cortland County 4-H Club program, in groups that explore a variety of topics. Members of 4-H clubs are learning sewing skills, robotics, public speaking skills, environmental issues, science, engineering, technology and math (STEM), how to care for and show an animal, healthy lifestyles, and having fun in the process! 4-H activities teach youth problem-solving skills that make a positive impact upon their community. 4-H helps youth meet the diverse challenges of today's world, build self-confidence, learn responsibility, and make positive decisions.
Contact the 4-H Office to find out about clubs in Cortland County. If there isn't already a 4-H club that meets your needs, our 4-H staff can help a parent or adult volunteer organize and support a club.
If you are interested in providing positive opportunities for youth in your area, consider becoming a new 4-H club leader in your community. 4-H staff provides orientation, on-going training, access to resources, and can assist you in building connections to other leaders.
