Carroll County 4-H is committed to serving the youth of Carroll County. 4-H is the youth development education program of Virginia Cooperative Extension. 4-H is committed to assisting youth, and those adults working with them, in acquiring the knowledge, life skills, and attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, contributing, and productive members of society. The central theme of 4-H education is "learn by doing."
This summer Carroll County 4-H will be offering cloverbud programming. Cloverbuds are children aged 5-8. These programs will be held at the Hillsville Extension Office (the old Hillsville Elementary School). Parents are welcomed and invited to stay during the program. Below is a schedule of events with times and topics. Please call to sign up your child for each program by 3:00 PM the previous day.
