4-H Youth

The 4-H Youth Development Program helps young people grow to become productive citizens. We offer 4-H clubs/projects, and summer camp. Columbia County 4-H youth programs build leadership skills, communication skills, and citizenship skills!

Get involved

Youth ages 9 to 18 can join in 4-H specific projects. We also have a program for youth ages 5 to 8 called 4-H Cloverbuds. Visit How to Join for more details, and call 503-397-3462. We'll be happy to connect you with 4-H clubs that have the same project interests as your child.

4-H needs adult volunteers

Adult volunteers lead 4-H projects and programs. Make a difference in the lives of youth in Columbia County. For more information about becoming a 4-H volunteer, visit Volunteer Opportunities. Please call for more information, and to reserve your spot for our next New Leader's Training.
