What is this program called 4-H?
Let us help you . . . . . .
Many people think of 4-H as an independent organization, but that isn't quite accurate. 4-H is the youth development program of the national Cooperative Extension System, through
the United States Department of Agriculture.
This means that your 4-H extension staff members are supported with resources from Land Grant Universities across the nation. Just take a look at our research-based curriculum and you can feel complete confidence in 4-H as a sound, educational organization. And, we've been around for over 100 years!
