Parent(s) or Helper Signatures 4-H Leader Signature Dear 4-H’er:
Welcome to the wonderful world of 4-H. We are excited that you’ve join the world’s largest informal youth program. As a 4-H member, you get the opportunity to create your own plan. In this plan, you’ll record everything you’d like to do in 4-H for the year. During the year, you’ll begin to do the things you planned. You’ll be learning new ideas, doing new activities, and sharing what you’ve learned and done. You’ll even apply what you learn in one project to another project or to some school activity.
This planning form has been prepared especially for you, the 5-8 year old 4-H’er. Please ask a helper to assist you in making your own plan for this year. This helper might be a parent or guardian, an older friend, your 4-H leader, or another 4-H’er. You and your helper can select 4-H subjects you’d like to learn this year. List those subjects in the blank spaces above labeled “Names of Projects”. On the other side of this page, you’ll find space to record all the things you’d like to learn or do. 4-H is fun! Have a great time as a 4-H member.

Planning My 4-H Year
What would you like to do in 4-H this year? You might want to go fishing with your club or learn how to launch rockets. Perhaps, you’d like to clean up your neighborhood or learn to make pizza. The possibilities are endless.
This page is designed for you to record what you want to do and learn this year. The things you plan to learn and do are called “goals”. Goals can be completed alone or with your friends. To begin, list the things you’d like to learn or do. List things like participating in specific projects, going to 4-H camp, modeling in a fashion show and serving as a 4-H helper for your leader.
You might also think of new goals during this year. If you do, just add them to your plan along with the month you think you’ll do them.
