Are You Interested In Joining Douglas County 4-H?

In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique, learn-by-doing model teaches kids essential, transferrable skills that they'll use throughout their lives, such as problem solving, decision making, coping, communicating and responding to the needs of others.  Whether youth are building rockets, raising dairy cows, or writing musical plays, 4-H gives them the skills they need to succeed in life.

Youth enrolled in kindergarten through one year past high school can participate in 4-H.  The enrollment/re-enrollment period (online registration) opens October 1 and should be completed by the end of October but enrollment will be accepted anytime.  Want to get a jump start on the enrollment process now?  Click here for a paper copy you can print, complete and return to the Douglas County Extension Office.  We are located in the Douglas County Service Center Building located at 720 Fillmore Street, (Suite B090) Alexandria, MN 56308.  Or call us at 320-762-3890 to request forms be mailed to you or to learn more about 4-H.
