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.

Want to join a club? 

Register your interest here so that we can match you with a club. Please note no matching happens between May 16th and Sep 15th as youth prepare their exhibits for fairs and finish their 4-H year.
