4-H Youth Development

The Chaves County 4-H program provides a creative and supportive environment in which youth and adults can learn by doing, through activities outside school where children and teens can learn and grow! We have 9 traditional 4-H clubs throughout the county, which participate in exploring more than 200 project areas from citizenship to woodworking, livestock to leadership, sewing to rocketry and 1 Cloverbud 4-H club for youth ages 5 - 8! Our 4-Her's participate in county, state and regional fairs, leadership retreats, community service projects and numerous competitive events.

Anyone can join 4-H! Have YOUR family JOIN our family!
