Serving DeWitt, Macon and Piatt Counties

Three 4-H members pose in a social media photo frame.

1 in 14 kids in Illinois is in 4-H. Through 4-H, youth can travel, have fun, build leadership skills and connect with new friends, mentors and future employers. Get ready to make the best better!

Explore existing DeWitt County 4-H clubs below. Don't see one in your area? Start your own club! All you need is an adult volunteer and five youth who will meet at least six times a year and explore one or many project areas. 

Clubs not your style? Sign up for an afterschool program or attend 4-H summer camp in Monticello. Teachers, add a 4-H curriculum to your classroom. Teenagers, share your skills and become a 4-H Teen Teacher.
