4-H is our nation’s largest youth organization. The 4-H Youth Development Program teaches life skills to youth through hands-on activities, leadership development, and community involvement.
Our science, healthy living, and civic engagement programs are backed by Washington State University Extension, Kittitas County, and a community of 4‑H volunteers and professionals. Through hands-on learning, kids build confidence, creativity, curiosity, and life skills such as leadership and resiliency to help them thrive today and tomorrow.
