Tarrant 4-H Adult Leader's Association

At Tarrant County 4-H, we believe every child deserves the chance to show the world their best. As part of the nation's largest youth development program, we allow young people from across the county to participate in hands-on learning projects in a friendly and inclusive club setting. While many people know 4-H as a program for raising livestock, today's 4-H has a myriad of projects to engage youth in many different areas and interests. By engineering robots for statewide competition, raising a steer for the Fort Worth Stock Show, or providing community service to their neighbors, 4-H members learn and practice skills in areas for which they are passionate. Through the twenty-two community clubs, youth are able to serve as officers, organize community service events, and socialize with peers from across the county. Many 4-H members lead by teaching their own projects and sharing the knowledge and skills they have gained through the program with their fellow members. By engaging their passions, the members of the community clubs become the leaders that we need for the future. Many members share their skills through competitions organized at the county, state, and national level. While competition tests a youth's knowledge, the greatest benefit of 4-H competition is the camaraderie that develops between competitors over a shared passion. Connections made at 4-H gatherings build bonds that last a lifetime. 4-H members take the motto, To Make the Best Better, to heart. As youth, they learn they can always work to improve themselves and their communities. They also learn through the diversity of their clubs that people from different backgrounds can come together to learn, have fun, and work towards a common goal.
