4-H...is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.
4-H is the youth education program of OSU Extension Service. Its mission is to develop youth and adult potential to improve communities through learning to live, learning to make a living, strengthening families and communities, becoming lifelong learners, developing leadership, and using research-based knowledge and the land grant university system.
Our most popular program for youth is the 4-H Club experience. Youth in Kindergarten through 12th grade can join a club in a wide variety of project areas.
We couldn't reach more than 5,000 Clackamas County youth each year without the help of our volunteers! Do you have what it takes to become a 4-H Volunteer?
