NFMS Clubs and Activities
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.

Operation Wildcat meets to write letters of support and gratitude to men and women serving in different branches of the US military. New recruits, veterans, first responders, and wounded warriors will be the recipients of the letters.
The poetry club allows students to unleash their creative side. In club meetings we read our favorite poetry-or works by our favorite poets, and write original poetry. We learn about various styles and techniques, as well. Our plan is to have a Poetry Slam at the end of the year providing an opportunity to share original poetry with others.
Please join us to share in the love of literature! The first book we will be reading is called Freak The Mighty, which all participants will need to purchase.
