What is 4-H?

The 4-H youth development program is a dynamic non-formal education program.

4-H provides youth with opportunities to learn skills, gain knowledge, have fun, and make contributions in such areas as environmental education, community service, and current youth issues.

4-H is rich with learning experiences where young people partner with caring adults and volunteers in a fellowship unlike any other program available to youth today. Through 4-H, young people are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that emphasize 4-H’s “learning by doing” philosophy of youth development.

Studies show that 4-H members:

  •  do better in school

  •  are more motivated to help others

  •  feel safe to try new things

  •  achieve a sense of self-esteem

  •  develop lasting friendships.
