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 grades K-12. Based on their grade level in school, youth are enrolled in 4-H in one of two ways. Youth grades K-3 enroll through the 4-H Cloverbuds. Youth in grades 4-12 enroll in 4-H by selecting projects or activities from the large number available to them.
4-H is offered equally to all youth grades 4-12 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.
