4-H is an informal, practical learning-by-doing educational program for youth. The purpose of 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive members of society. 4-H is in every community across America.
4-H is the youth education program of the Oregon State University Extension Service (Land Grant University). 4-H membership is available to all Oregon youth age 9-18 (Sr. in High School). Based on their age on September 1st for the 4-H year, youth are enrolled in 4-H in one of two ways. Youth age 5-8 enroll through the 4-H Cloverbuds. Youth age 9-18 (19 if a Sr. in High School) enroll in 4-H by selecting projects or activities from the large number available to them.
4-H is offered equally to all youth ages 9-18 (19 if a Sr. in High School) and is available in all Grant County communities with leader availability determining the projects in each community. Parents are encouraged to be active in the 4-H program. Youth sign up through the coummunity club leaders and/or project leaders or through the OSU Extension Service-Grant County office.
