4-H Day of Service

The Florida 4-H State Council is proud to announce our new State Service Project – “Serving Those Who Serve Us.”  This project is a call to action for 4-H members to engage in service projects that will help those who do so much for our community (such as teachers, 4-H agents, fire fighters, police officers, librarians, military service men and women, social workers, park ranger, etc) while showing our appreciation to them.  4-H members can use this project at a district, county, and club level.

We are partnering with Kentucky and Tennessee 4-H to have a 4-H Civic Engagement Day during National 4-H Week.  Below you will find resources assembled by the Florida 4-H State Project Committee to help you and your fellow 4-H members get involved in this exciting initiative, and carryout your own service projects. The State Project guide below also contains sample project ideas, and a report back system, so you can share your work with others across the three states!

On Saturday, October 12, 2013, we invite you to join 4-H members across the southern region in a 4-H Day of Service by holding your own service project!  Please see the flyers/resources below to find out more how to take part in this portion of the “Serving Those Who Serve Us” initiative.
