  • Celebrating True Leaders in Service!
    This April, Koochiching County 4-H pledges our hands to larger service all month long! Youth across the county are lending helping hands through neighborhood clean-up, beautification projects and much more. You can find out how the members of Koochiching County 4-H are giving back to their communities.
  • Come plan a Community Service Project with us!
    Do you enjoy helping those in need? Do you want to be part of making our community better place to live? The State Top Stars 4-H club will be meeting on Tuesdays starting April 11 to learn firsthand what needs to get done to make a successful Community Service project happen! If you would like to be a True Leader in Service, register to join us by April 7.
  • Mark your calendars for Risk Management Training and Fair Business Meeting
    Safe youth programs don’t just happen! Come learn more about some of risk management practices and tools that our 4-H youth program has to offer. Then stay for our council’s Fair Business meeting.
  • LQA&E Training Locations
    All youth participating as a State Fair 4-H livestock exhibitor in beef, dairy, sheep, swine, poultry, rabbit, meat and dairy goat, and llama must have completed the Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics workshop. Because we anticipate few participants needing this training, our county program will encourage any members that wish to receive the training to attend in neighboring counties.
  • DiSCovery: a GREAN Leadership Adventure
    Join us as we begin the DiSCovery of another great GREAN leadership adventure! The GREAN Team will come together to create a service learning experience that will help members learn the value of service and be inspired to make a difference. On this exciting journey, participants will have the opportunity to improve leadership skills and develop meaningful, life-long friendships.
