The 4-H Electric Program is an informal hands-on youth program conducted by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, professional 4-H agents, and adult volunteer leaders. They develop and deliver activities that provide youth with opportunities to learn about the fundamentals of electricity, renewable energy technologies, and energy conservation. Participants also develop an awareness for how energy is generated, distributed, used, and financed. A key focus of the 4-H Electric Program is the development of life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, public speaking, and teamwork.

Currituck County 4-H is hosting a series of workshops starting Friday, September 17, 2021 starting at 2:00 p.m. for youth ages 11 to 18.  These workshops will provide youth the opportunity to:

  • build circuits,
  • learn to solder,
  • create working switches,
  • participate in energy and electric experiments,
  • learn about careers in the energy industry
  • and much, much more.

Youth that participate in these workshops will also learn about NC 4-H Electric Congress and how to earn the opportunity to attend this exciting, all expenses paid event. For more information on this event visit

Additional Electric/Energy programs will be held Friday, October 22, Friday, November 19, and Wednesday, December 22, and registration links will be published soon.
