4-H Clubs in Ellis County     

We have several active clubs in Ellis County. To learn more or find out how you can become involved, contact the Ellis County Extension office at (972) 825-5175.   

Texas 4-H is built upon a base of outstanding employees, members, volunteers, alumni, and donors committed to Making the Best Better. These individuals are Texas 4-H, and these are their stories:

I am Texas 4-H, YOU are Texas 4-H, WE are Texas 4-H.

Volunteer with 4-H!

Four-H students are leaders. They pursue passions. They solve problems and tackle everyday challenges. And YOU are the key to their success! We need adult volunteers to mentor 4-H youth, lead local clubs, and run events. No experience necessary – we’ll train you! But you must be at least 18 years old – or 21 years old to chaperone overnight trips – and pass a criminal background check outlined in the Volunteer Screening Rules/Guidelines (YPS) Youth Protection Standards to learn about what goes into working with youth under 18.
