Missoula County Weed District & Extension


4-HThe 4-H Youth Development Program is the largest out of school youth program in the U.S., with over 6 million members and 500,000 teen and adult volunteers.

Montana 4-H projects are designed to help you:

  • Get along with other people
  • Make wise decisions and take responsibility for your choices
  • Foster a positive sense of self
  • Develop a sense of curiosity
  • Acquire a concern for your community - local and global

In Missoula County, 441 Youth are enrolled in the 4-H program.  Every 4-H member belongs to a 4-H Club, and there are 14 Clubs to choose from in the County. There is no limit to the number of clubs operating, so new clubs can be formed as well.

4-H Clubs have regular meetings and are run by elected youth officers with the help of adult 4-H Volunteers. At club meetings, Parliamentary Procedure is practiced, community service projects are organized and accomplished, fundraising skills are learned, and fun social events are held.

4-H youth must be 9 years of age during the 4-H year (October 1st - September 30th). A variety of project areas are available. More information is available online at the Montana 4-H website.

To find out more about how to become a 4-H Member, contact Campbell or Colleen at the Missoula County Extension Office.  Please email Campbell or Colleen about the specific information you would like for us to send to you.
