Tillamook 4-H club looks to help teens reach goals

Posted: Wednesday, June 4, 2014 12:04 pm

Head, heart, hands and health. They’re the four H’s that 4-H bases its club off of. In the United States, there are over six million members, and in Oregon alone, the number of people participating is in the thousands. Tillamook has its own 4-H club, as the Oregon State University Extension Service helps to mold the young into contributing, productive, self-directed members of society, according to their pamphlet.

Students range in age from fourth grade, to seniors in high school. More recently, the local 4-H club has set up a teen entrepreneurship program, where the participants come up with projects. At the Tillamook County Fair in August, the young entrepreneurs will present some of their ideas to a panel of judges.
