The 4-H Family & Consumer Sciences program includes projects related to you, your home, and your family. Projects are not only interesting and fun, but offer opportunities for developing skills that are useful throughout one's lifetime. These include learning to cook, sewing, and refinishing furniture. Youth have the opportunity to develop decision-making, manage resources, become better consumers, express creativity, acquire knowledge, build social skills, and feel pride in their accomplishments. Projects within this program area include food and nutrition; fine arts and crafts; wearable art; textiles and clothing; home environment; child development; and visual arts and photography.
