Pick one or all of the project disciplines Alabama 4-H offers: Archery, Shotgun, Rifle, Western Heritage, and Hunting and Outdoor Skills. What makes our program different? 4-H S.A.F.E. clubs are founded on the principles of positive youth development. Our goal is to ensure that youth feel welcome in our program, that they grow in leadership independence, and are inspired to be generous in service to others.
Alabama 4-H S.A.F.E. is a youth development education program that emphasizes peer mentoring and positive interactions between youth and adults. Youth must be at least 9 years old to participate. 4-H S.A.F.E. uses the skills and disciplines of safe shooting to teach the principles of responsible firearm ownership and assist young people and their leaders with essential life skills.
All Alabama 4-H S.A.F.E. programs and events are conducted under the supervision of an adult volunteer or staff who has successfully completed the 12-hour state 4-H S.A.F.E. coach certification class.
