Jefferson County 4-H has created two new neighborhood 4-H clubs for youth in grades 3 to 12.

These new clubs were created and organized in locations that will allow youth to walk to and from the meetings. The first meeting at each location will be Tuesday, April 16 at 4 p.m. at the Salvation Army in Madison and Thursday, April 18 at 4:30 p.m. at the Hanover Park Community Center.

Jefferson County Purdue Extension Education Angela Rathert and Program Assistant Bess Adams will be leading these clubs. Rathert said she hopes they will recruit more volunteers as they go.

4-H club work reaches youth through a variety of programs and activities that are hands-on, age-appropriate, educational and fun. 4-H helps youth improve their self-confidence, learn subject matter and develop important life skills. For more information, call (812) 265-8919.
