When 4-H was started, boys and girls were members of clubs which raised crops, livestock, and preserved foods. The main purpose was to transfer the research based knowledge from the land grant universities to the local community. Today, the 4-H Youth Development Program continues to be a "learn by doing", research-based, educational experience for youth.
In addition to animal care and horticulture, new project activities include technology, drama, science, engineering, healthy living and photography. The resources of the New Jersey land grant university - Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey - provide support and educational opportunities to 4-H youth as well as adult volunteers. Through the leadership of dedicated adult volunteers, youth develop leadership abilities, self-confidence, and life skills. These attributes prepare young people for the challenges of the 21st century. The 4-H experience is available to all youth. 4-H prohibits discrimination in all programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status. Interested adults are invited to serve as volunteers making a difference.

Having been around for almost 40 years, the Burlington County 4-H Cloggers are the oldest clogging group in New Jersey. They are a wonderful group of 4-H youth in grades K-12. The club is very active, performing locally and around the tri-state area at events, fairs, and many service oriented performances like nursing homes and senior citizen events. The members learn to improve their public speaking skills while announcing at performances, and develop their citizenship and leadership skills with the yearly community services projects they perform, all while having fun learning the art of Clog Dancing.
The Burlington County 4-H Cloggers are supported by hard-working parents who take an active role in the club. Club members, leaders, and parents can all attest to the fact that Clogging is a terrific experience for these 4-H'ers.
