4-H Clark Co

Welcome to Clark County 4-H!

The largest youth program in the nation, 4-H is a national program that has a home in every state in the country! The home of the 4-H Youth Development Program in our state is Washington State University, and it is brought to local communities by Washington State University Extension faculty and staff.

Our Mission: Positive Youth Development

The mission of the 4-H Youth Development Program is to help young people grow into responsible, contributing citizens. To reach this goal, 4-H has developed educational materials that emphasize development of life skills in young people through fun, hands-on projects. The 4-H educational materials are developed by education specialists, and updated approximately every five years to keep the content fresh and relevant. Each leader and member manual is full of directions for fun, hands-on activities that, at the same time, teach critical life skills.
