Self-Determined Projects

The Idaho 4-H Self-Determined project option is available to youth 14-18 years of age.  It is designed for members to explore appropriate educational interests in subject areas where either: (1) no Idaho-approved 4-H curriculum exists, or (2) members have completed all levels of the approved curriculum and desire to continue learning about that subject in greater depth.  At no time shall it be used to substitute for currently approved Idaho 4-H curriculum. 

Furthermore, while supporting member’s creativity, for safety and liability reasons all proposed Self-Determined project plans (fully completed through page 10 of the member manual) must be submitted to local Extension 4-H personnel for review and approval, before members continue with their project.  Extension personnel may require plan modifications and/or deny approval of the proposed plan if they foresee potential safety issues or if it does not comply with the parameters set forth above.

        Because of inherent risk management issues, Self-Determined projects related to the 4-H Shooting Sports program are not permitted.

Some counties have more requirements. Contact your 4-H leader or UI Extension county office to check.
