UCCE Sonoma County uses the Proficiency program to help youth learn at their own pace by measuring their progress in achieving a set of goals.  This program can also help Project Leaders organize and plan their project in a sequential manner.

Presentation Proficiency  

Public speaking is a big part of 4-H.  Youth may complete the presentation proficiency and earn a pin at Achievement Night in the fall.  

For complete instructions go to the Presentation Proficiency Page

Project Proficiencies

These are "checklists" of things that you should learn in the course of a project.  Youth are allowed to complete project proficiencies each 4-H year and they will receive pins for them in the fall of the following year.  They must be turned in to your club leader in time to all be sent to the 4-H Office by September 1 - check with your club leader for more details.  Late proficiencies will be held for award the following year.
