National 4-H Week (October 4-10)

Even though National 4-H week is almost over it's not too late to get involved with Alleghany 4-H
In Alleghany County there are more than 400 youth 4-H members and 50 volunteers involved in the 4-H program.

The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical, "learn by doing" experiences encourage youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. 4-H programs are offered through school-based, after-school and camp settings and within community clubs.

You can join the 4-H community today. To learn how to become a 4-H member or volunteer leader in Alleghany County, contact Amy Lucas, Extension Agent - 4-H Youth Development at the Alleghany Extension Office at (336) 372-5597 or

4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. National 4-H Council is the private sector, non-profit partner of National 4-H Headquarters (USDA). The 4-H programs are implemented by the 106 Land Grant Universities adn the Cooperative Extension System through their 3,100 local Extension offices across the country.
