What is Community Service in 4-H?
Community Service teaches members civic responsibility, and gives them organized opportunities to get involved in community.
Community service opportunities abound at all levels of 4-H, from individual or Club projects, to projects on a National scale.
OakTown 4-H will strive to have at least one community service project per month for all club members, such as drives (canned foods, toys, books), short hands-on activities (Cards for Seniors or troops, decorations for senior centers) or larger extra-club meeting activities (community clean ups, Davis Street Toy Sorting, Community Garden).
Community service activities may be in conjunction with a project or county, sectional or state event. In addition, projects may do community service within their project, such as the Gardening Project donating produce to a homeless shelter or the Sewing Project making pillowcases for children in hospitals.
Activities may be arranged by club leaders, project leaders, the community service chair, or individual members and parents.
