4-H Youth Development
What Is 4-H?
4-H is the youth development program of our nation's Cooperative Extension System and USDA. Believing in the power of young people to make a difference, 4-H is America's largest youth development and youth mentoring organization - empowering nearly six million kids annually with the skills to lead for a lifetime.
Through three mission mandates – citizenship, healthy living, and science – 4-H provides meaningful opportunities for youth and adults to work together to create sustainable community change. (read more)
Here in Coos County 4-H is available to youth ages 5-19 through the Oregon State University Extension Service. Because 4-H uses an active, hands-on approach, young people see how their actions make a difference in the lives of others and the world around them. (read more)
