Family and Consumer Sciences

This project area helps 4-H youth learn about child care and development, eating right and taking care or yourself, how to sew your own clothes, how to be smart with your money, and more. Projects are available for individual cloverbud learning, general individual learning, and general group learning.

Each activity guide includes a separate achievement program and activities, that promote learning and interaction with other youth, adult helpers, family members and your community. The group helper guides contain ready‐to‐use group activities that can be used by older youth, teachers and project leaders. You can preview some National 4-H project materials on the web at:
