To Make the Best, Better

Welcome to Penobscot Valley Homeschool Adventurers 4-H Club!

PVHA 4-H Club is part of the Youth Development Program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and it is run in partnership with the Penobscot County UMaine Extension Office. PVHA 4-H Club was organized in 1987 to provide a way for youth including homeschoolers to get together for constructive projects and activities. PVHA 4-H Club is open to youth 5-19 years old; younger children can participate as non-PVHA 4-H Club members with parents as their chaperones as long as they have an older sibling that is a current PVHA member.

PVHA 4-H meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month from October to May at the First United Methodist Church in Brewer from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. Fall session began on October 2, Spring session begins on February 10.
