LEE COUNTY — 4-H members in Carroll, Lee and Whiteside counties will join the 6 million youth across the country in celebrating National 4-H Week, Oct. 6 - 12. The theme is “Inspired to Lead Called to Serve.” 4-H youth development programs provide hands-on learning activities for youth in Illinois and throughout the country. 4-H youth programs focus on leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H members are four times more likely to contribute to their communities, two times more likely to make healthier choices and two times more likely to participate in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs.
