Healthy Living Projects


Learn about nutrition, hygiene, fitness, or first aid skills.


Learn how to choose a bike, bike maintenance and repair, and road rules to make riding safe and fun.

Consumer Education

You need to manage money throughout your life. Improve your money management skills and become a more informed consumer. Learn to distinguish between wants and needs; identify, set and evaluate goals; track expenses and income, and more.


4-H Cloverbuds explore and learn about the world in a non-competitive environment by doing fun activities with the guidance of parents or other adult helpers.

Science of Agriculture

Develop science-based responses to agriculture-related issues identified in your communities.

Food & Nutrition

Learn to pick healthy foods, prepare nutritious meals, and make smart food purchases.


Learn about safety for water, fire, electricity and recreational vehicles. Make a first-aid or winter-survival kit.


If you find that no single project is quite right for you, you can develop your own project. Be your own researcher, scientist, artist, communicator, and evaluator. Ask your local 4-H leader or Extension staff for resources to help create your own project area.
