Fall/Winter Classes 2020

4-H'ers waving during a Zoom call

Cabarrus County 4-H:  A little bit different, but still the same!

Join us for some great hands-on learning events, all hosted virtually.

Virtual doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, be interactive, hands-on, or a great experience. We just have to do things a bit differently! Our classes are set up to give you instruction time, one on one individualized attention when needed, opportunity to share and celebrate and on your own work time. We have lots of smiling volunteers ready to help you out along the way. Let’s keep learning!
