Learn, lead, and make a difference in your community through the Texas 4-H Citizenship Project. As you learn more about your community and how to participate, you’ll learn about local government and the Texas legislative process. Some 4-H members even decide to serve on community boards for parks or local groups like the Boys & Girls Club. Your leadership, communication, decision-making skills will improve as you develop a sense of pride in your community.
This project is really what you make it! You can choose to do a short or long project, but many 4-H members do citizenship activities throughout their 4-H career by participating in One Day 4-H, National 4-H Week, serving in their local community government or with other community organizations. Make it what you want it to be! Talk to your club leader or your county Extension agent about what you can do.
