What is 4-H?
4-H is a positive youth development program, led by caring adult volunteers, that focuses on the development of life-skills in youth 5-19 years of age through a variety of projects. 4-H learning experiences are designed to help youth “do, reflect and apply” the lesson to life situations. 4-H members build self-confidence, make responsible decisions, give back to their community, discover the value of teamwork and expand their communication skills through self-chosen projects in which they have high interest. 4-H engages youth in life skill development in order to help youth become productive, caring, capable citizens who are prepared to transition into adulthood.
4-H members have FUN while learning. New adventures and projects await your every turn through this positive program. Explore ideas through a club, project, event or fair. Have fun learning taking care of animals, express yourself through the arts, create delicious new foods, explore nature, participate in contests, practice public presentations, design a robot or compete in some of the state’s top archery competitions. Fun awaits you – opportunities are endless!
