ATLANTA, GA — Atlanta History Center took the opportunity to form partnership with UGA Extension, part of the University of Georgia, and founded the Atlanta History Center 4-H, or Head, Heart, Hands, Health, Community Club. The programs are designed for students who live or go to school in Fulton County between grades K-12. The youngsters are encouraged to take active leadership roles, school and community clubs and 4-H camps.

The 4-H is intended for the youth to complete hands-on projects in health, science, agriculture and citizenship in an environment where they will receive guidance from adult mentors. The mission is to help the youngsters acquire knowledge, develop life skills and form attitudes that enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of their communities.

Atlanta History Center provides the educational setting, such as utilizing our extensive gardens, exhibitions and collections to demonstrate the connection between the region's history, culture and people. The program is held each summer, where the youths are free to explore the museum and participate in curated activities.

Some of provided programs based on the age are:

  • Kindergarten through third Grade - Cloverbud 4-Hers

Community club, workshops, summer day programs and literacy with horticulture programs, etc.
