CSU 4-H Youth Development

4-H Youth Development:Montezuma County 4H Program Facebook

4-H provides learning experiences in which youth develop life skills such as communication, citizenship, decision-making, interpersonal relationships and community, and global awareness. Kids experience 4-H through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4-H camps.

Traditional 4-H: 4-H programs are available for children ages 8-18, while there are 4-H Clover bud programs for children ages 5-7. Kids complete hands-on projects where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. They learn these skills through projects.

Brenda Hindmarsh’s a former 4H member and has been the Club leader for around 22 years. Bring up her 3 boys in the 4H program. She is also the Rabbit leader and County Fair Rabbit Superintendent. Her children have been out of 4H for many years, but she continues to volunteer due to her belief in how the program helps the youth. Phyliss Snyder was the Club leader for many many years prior.

Members of the Club hold fundraisers, complete community service projects, participate in monthly Club meetings, County meetings; using proper parliamentary procedures and to develop public speaking skills do a minimum of one demonstration per year.

Kalvin’s Kids
Kalvin’s Kids 4-H Club was named after Calvin Denton in the late 1950s to early 1960s. Calvin Denton
ran the Massey Ferguson dealership in Pleasant View. He loved supporting the community and the
kids. Calvin would award club members a silver dollar for winning a blue ribbon, 50 cents for a red ribbon
and 25 cents for a white ribbon. After Calvin passed away he left a CD for the 4-H Club.
