4-H connects youth to hands-on learning opportunities that help them grow into competent, caring, contributing members of society.
4-H, the nation’s largest youth development organization, grows confident young people who are empowered for life today and prepared for career tomorrow. 4-H programs empower nearly six million young people across the U.S. through experiences that develop critical life skills. 4-H is the youth development program of our nation’s Cooperative Extension System and USDA, and serves every county and parish in the U.S. through a network of 110 public universities and more than 3000 local Extension offices. Globally, 4-H collaborates with independent programs to empower one million youth in 50 countries. The research-backed 4-H experience grows young people who are four times more likely to contribute to their communities; two times more likely to make healthier choices; two times more likely to be civically active; and two times more likely to participate in STEM programs.
The Ulster County Fair is our largest event of the year! Find us in the Youth Building and animal barns, devour our delicious 4-H milkshakes and savor an ear of fresh, local corn picked daily.
Supporters will have a chance to show their support by purchasing $1 and $4 Paper Clovers to equip local Clubs with resources to reach more kids in need.
