Montana 4-H includes a special program for youth five to seven years old called Cloverbuds. Youngsters in the Cloverbud project work with other children on selected 4-H activities from a structured curriculum that is fun, hands-on and discovery-oriented. Youth of this age group enroll ONLY in this project and all activities are non-competitive. Youth can explore horse and other animal projects, but can’t enroll in them. Through Cloverbuds, children can develop age-appropriate skills and abilities. Guidelines for this project are different from those of the traditional 4-H program. The agent and volunteer manual provide necessary information and guidelines for conducting a Cloverbud program.
