4-H Youth Development programs help youth learn life skills through informal, hands-on activities. These programs and activities help youth develop their leadership skills and explore future career options. You may call us at (812) 547-7084 or visit us at the Courthouse Annex, 2nd floor, in Cannelton, 125 S. 8th Street.

4-H members can only be members of 4-H clubs in one county or state. 4-H is available to all youth in kindergarten through 12th grade! Participation in the 4-H program is not limited to "farm kids." Many who participate in 4-H are involved in projects that are not related to agriculture! 

Please contact the Extension office for information on joining a Perry County 4-H Club. You can call 812-547-7084 or email Cathy Boerste, the 4-H Youth Development Educator at boerste@purdue.edu
