About 4-H

4-H is a national youth development program for boys and girls, ages 5-18 (grades K-12). At age 5, youth become a "Cloverbud" and participate in entry-level programs at the county level.  At age 8, youth become a full 4-H member and can participate in all programs at the county and state levels.  The program emphasizes "learning by doing" for the growth and development of youth of all backgrounds whether they live in the city or on a farm. The primary goal of 4-H is to assist youth in developing life skills that help them live productive and satisfying lives. Some of the important life skills the youth learn include leadership, responsibility, goal setting, communication, problem solving, relationships, and career. Being part of a 4-H club is one of the most meaningful and productive ways to participate in 4-H. So join now!
