4-H Youth

4-H is an infomal, 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.

Professionals and volunteers working together provide educational projects and activities related to animal science, horticulture, home economics, engineering, natural science, expressive arts, leadership, and citizenship.

4-H is America's largest out-of-school educational program for youth.  More than 6 million youth now participate in 4-H, under the guidance of 600,000 Extension-trained adult volunteer leaders.  It is estimated that nearly 40 million American adults are former 4-H members.
