4-H Youth Development

Welcome to White Pine County 4-H Youth Development

White Pine County 4-H has a variety of programs for youth ages 5 to 19 years of age that allows them to develop, create and engage in fun, age-appropriate learning activities. There is a range of curriculum and delivery methods in the three different communities of the county: Ely/McGill/Steptoe Valley, Lund/Duckwater/Currant, and Goshute/Callao/Ibapah.

The Nevada State 4-H Program operates on a fiscal year of Oct. 1 through Sept. 30. For most clubs throughout White Pine County 4-H, enrollment is open year-round. The annual dues are $3 per member and $2 per project, no family will pay more than $15 per year. Some clubs may have fees to help cover the cost of supplies, but these expenses are usually minimal and optional.

Throughout the year, opportunities abound for 4-H youth. In the summer months, Southern Area 4-H Camp is the place to be. In August, it is time for the traditional fair and rodeo. During the winter, the weekends are full of 4-H activities. The spring months are busy, with livestock season beginning, and the annual county junior livestock show in August.

While all these seasonal events are occurring, other 4-H programs, such as dog clubs, cooking clubs, and arts and crafts groups, are also busy with their own activities. In White Pine County, not only are the traditional 4-H clubs offered, but shooting sports is one of the most active programs in White Pine County where 4-H members learn firearm safety, precision and accuracy while operating firearms.

The heart of 4-H youth development is our faithful and trained adult volunteer leaders. If you or your children are looking for an enjoyable and quality youth development experience, contact us:
