4-H

4-H logoWelcome to the Taylor County 4-H Website!

The Taylor County 4-H Program is a great place for young people to build self confidence, learn leadership skill and responsibility….and have a GREAT time doing it! We have many resources on our website for youth and adults interested in participating in the Taylor County 4-H Program, but if you don’t see something and you’d like more information about it, don’t hesitate to contact us at the Taylor County Extension Office at 715-748-3327 x4 or x3 or visit us at 925 Donald St., Room 103, in Medford.

CLUB LEADERS:

    • Enrollment for leaders/volunteers in 4-H Online: One of the main changes is that you will need to select a club and a volunteer type. For those leaders not affiliated with a club, there will be a “no club designated” (or something similar) club listing. Descriptions of each volunteer type and details will be available soon (watch for more information), but the options are:
      • Activity/Event Volunteer
      • Adult Advisor/Chaperone
      • Club Enrollment Coordinator (formerly Club Enrollment and Club Manager)
      • Club Leader (includes Organizational/General and Co-Organizational/Co-General)
      • Committee Volunteer
      • Project Leader (includes Key Leader and Resource Leader)

We do not yet know when the 4-H Educator/Positive Youth Development position will be filled. Until it is, you may contact me with 4-H questions. However, because it has been a while since I did this and there have been some changes since that time, I may need to check with someone else or refer you to someone else. Also, please remember that 4-H is just one part of my job, and it may take a little longer for you to get a response.
