Family Guide

This is your place to connect to our entire collection of 4-H project books for the year. Each project book contains information and activities for members to explore as an organized group project or at home under the guidance of a parent or interested adult. When choosing a project, consider your interests, background, what is necessary to start the project and the resources available to help you complete it. The At-a-Glance 4-H Project Selection guide at the back of the Family Guide will help you choose the right project. Project books are available at the OSU Extension Office, Madison County, 217 Elm Street, London, Ohio.
