4-H Afterschool & Classroom

King County 4-H proudly partners with teachers, afterschool programs, summer camps, and other out-of-school time programs to deliver hands-on, experiential education activities. We provide professional development training, lead direct programming for special events such as family nights and virtual field trips, in addition to loaning kits, curriculum, and materials to educational partners. Our resources focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and creative arts.

STEM Program

Robotics. Aerospace. Alternative energy. Engineering. Environmental science. Agri-science. Veterinary science. These are just a few of the programs that 4-H youth participate in everyday and learn new skills that make a difference in our communities. Our hands-on programs empower youth and provide them with opportunities to grow, learn, and become confident kids. Visit our STEM Program page to learn more about training, materials and curriculum that we have to offer.

Creative Arts Program

With support from the Boeing Company, WSU’s College of Arts and Sciences (formerly the College of Liberal Arts) has developed this unique collaboration with the 4-H Youth Development Program to bring arts education to Washington youth. The mission of the Arts for Children’s Enrichment Project (ACE Project) is to provide experiential arts opportunities for the youth of Washington state, through introduction to various mediums and forms of art expression, that broaden understanding in the areas of culture and sustainability and that support life skills development in youth.

As a participant in the Ace Project, the King County 4-H office has kits of art supplies and curriculum guides to support

If you are interested in checking a kit out for your 4-H club, classroom, afterschool program, or other event, please contact the 4-H office.
