Welcome to 4-H!

4-H programs are grounded in the belief that youth learn best by doing. Youth complete hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors. Youth can concentrate on one focus area or they can try a variety of programs throughout their 4‑H experience.
