Description

In 4-H Family and Consumer Sciences projects, youth enhance the personal skills they often learn within the family and home--how to dress to impress; cook a variety of foods; plan a meal; select clothing within the family budget; mend or make one's own clothing; maintain a healthy weight by eating the right way; get along with others; decorate and maintain one's space or room; spend money wisely; create a budget and live within it; practice good manners; make wise decisions; start a business; babysit siblings or the neighbor's children; learn about jobs and what it takes to get a job in a field that matches their interests.  

Contact your county extension office for more information.  The 4-H agent or other staff person will be happy to answer your questions.
