ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County 4-H held it's first open house at the extension office in downtown Albany on Thursday.
The event informed students and parents about upcoming activities this school year.
4-H is a youth organization that teaches kids life skills that will prepare them to be better citizens of their communities.
"4-H could be that thing that a child needs to keep them excited about their future, about school. We're really working hard to prepare kids for life after school," said Dougherty County 4-H Agent Jazmin Thomas.
Students in 4th through 12th grade can join the organization.
The next event will take place September 20th at the U-G-A Tifton campus where students can explore the programs offered at University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences.
