Pitt County 4-H Clubs

— Written By

Head, Heart, Hands, Health

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills offered through a variety of settings: Clubs, schools, day camps, overnight camps, afterschool, and other learning environments. 4-H gives kids and teens opportunities to experience life skills and to practice them in a safe environment with caring adults. There are many project areas to fit all interests—not just agriculture. Best of all 4-H is Free* to all members!

Most clubs meet 1-2 times per month, year round, Club leaders set their own meeting times and locations. To join a 4-H club contact a 4-H club leader or the   N.C. Cooperative Extension of Pitt County office at
