A 4-H project is an opportunity for a member to gain knowledge and skills in a certain area of interest. It includes a planned sequence of activities that are age-appropriate and research-based. The member often sets individual goals of what he or she wishes to learn and accomplish in the specific project area. 4-H project work is guided by trained adult or youth mentors who help youth set goals and provide access to appropriate curricula and resources. An opportunity to exhibit a finished product related to the project area is typically provided. At this exhibit the member receives constructive feedback on his or her project exhibit.
