Thank you for visiting the Meade County 4-H Youth Development website.  We hope that you find something that interests your child.  We are always looking for new program ideas and for NEW VOLUNTEERS to lead those programs.  If you are interested in volunteering with our 4-H Program, please contact me at our office to discuss ways that you may be interested in volunteering.


The volunteer application process begins with, of course, an application, so here it is.  Please follow the link below to our volunteer application packet, complete it, and return to our office to get the process started.  


Kentucky 4-H Youth Development

Strategic Plan


The Kentucky 4-H Youth Development program will develop a comprehensive strategic plan to help guide 4-H programming efforts through 2025.  This plan will help us define our values and priorities, clearly communicate our programming trajectory, and better enable us to report on successes and impact.  This plan will be developed with input from key stakeholders, reviewed and constructed by a Strategic Planning Team, and communicated broadly by state specialists.  Information gathering and development of the strategic plan will take place through August 2018.  The final plan will be released on September 1, 2018.

Thank you for your feedback and ideas on how to "MAKE THE BEST BETTER" in Kentucky 4-H Youth Development Education!
