The 4-H Youth Development Program focuses on providing youth of all ages with the life skills they need to succeed in today’s world.
Projects and activities are vehicles that help young people learn and grow through an intentional process that builds competence, confidence, connection, compassion and character. Research has shown that by participating in 4-H, young people prepare themselves for economic and social success in adulthood.
