In this project, youth will learn the basics of computer programming. Open to youth ages 9 and up, must have a laptop.
SEWING & KNITTING
This year we are pleased to offer two different fiber arts projects. Youth will learn these skills and participate in the county Fashion Revue.
In this project, youth get comfortable learning how to use kitchen tools, make recipes from scratch as well as being introduced to new foods! They learn how to measure and read a recipe. Plus -- the youth participate in the annual Food Fiesta where they get to share their cooking prowess with the judges!
In the public speaking project, youth develop the skills needed for public speaking. They have the opportunity to reach for gold at the County Presentation Day.
CAMPING & OUTDOOR ADVENTURES
The youth in the camping project will be able to plan a camping trip with the club. They'll be in charge of planning activities, meals and the location of the trip.
Outdoor adventures will meet monthly to explore the outdoors.
For our 2019/20 year we are offering a variety of projects:
Table Top Games
Plus -- County Projects like archery, camp and camp leadership are available.
In addition to club projects, we have community service projects as well as county events where we join fellow 4-H'ers from Contra Costa County.
4-H members participate in projects where they are asked to accomplish a task, i.e., make something, develop a skill, raise and/or train an animal, etc. There are numerous projects available to 4-H members, including; foods, clothing, public speaking, rocketry, beekeeping, small animals, robotics, and even baseball. 4-H members begin by exploring their interests. They may select one or more projects, and receive a project manual which guides them through the activities. 4-H projects are age appropriate. The 16 year old 4-H member will be expected to do a more advanced project within their area of interest, whereas the 10 year old might be working with an introductory activity.
4-H'ers can complete a record that demonstrates their project achievements and enter competition on a county, district and state level. One of the most important aspects of 4-H project work is that the 4-H member decides what they want to learn and do as they explore their project. This allows the project to be self-paced, and gives children important skills in setting and working toward their goals.
