Welcome to the Wahkiakum 4-H parent page.

Wahkiakum 4-H is a 100 year-old collaboration of Washington State University Extension staff, county government, volunteers, youth and families. They all work together to develop young people into productive citizens engaged in positive change, meeting the needs of a diverse and changing society.  4 H youth development education creates supportive environments for all youth and families to reach their fullest potential, with goals of:

  • providing formal and non-formal experiential learning,
  • developing skills that benefit youth throughout life,
  • fostering leadership and volunteerism in youth and adults,
  • strengthening families and communities,
  • employing research based knowledge and the land grant university system, and embracing and expanding the traditions of the 4-H Youth program.
