A 4-H PROJECT IS:
• Planned work in an area of interest to the 4-H member.
• Guided by a 4-H adult volunteer who is the project leader.
• Aimed at planned objectives that can be attained and measured.
• Summarized by some form of record keeping.
Members participating for the first time may be encouraged to limit their selections to one to two projects for the year. As members gain experience, the size or depth of the project may increase, and/or additional projects may be selected. Some project groups meet once a week, while others might meet once or twice a year. The purpose of these meetings is to guide the members in gaining knowledge, attitudes, skills, and habits needed to successfully navigate educational and professional pursuits, and their role as citizens in a complex world.
