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, Yakima 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.
With the support of adult mentors, youth select from a variety of hands-on project ideas to complete. 4‑H programs are available for kids and teens ages 5-18.
There are many 4-H clubs meeting in towns and cities across Yakima County. For more information, please contact the Extension office.
