Program Contact: Randy Williams

4-H is a youth development program for kids 5 to 19 years of age.

Volunteers teach life skills through a variety of subjects delivered in a variety of ways to youths in local, State, National, & International 4-H programs. 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.

The joy of 4-H is seeing young people grow through their accomplishments.

Developing all youth to reach their fullest potential through:

  • Learning by doing
  • Contact with caring adults
  • Access to research information

4-H enables youth to have fun and meet new people. There are opportunities to learn life skills, set goals, build self-confidence, learn responsibility and make decisions. Working with others encourages teamwork and communication skills. Competitive situations help youth develop ethics and learn to accept wins and losses gracefully.
