4-H In the School Year

     4-H can be a part of afterschool, child-care, and in-school activities. We offer in-school programs like the Mahan School 4-H Cooking Club (pictured). With hands-on, experiential-based curriculum, 4-H is a perfect fit for youth service programs that teach core values while having fun.
