Welcome to 4-H

Congratulations!  Your family is joining one of the largest educational youth organizations in the United States.  4-H is truly a family program.  While the educational experience of 4-H is designed for youth, adult involvement is a key to their success.  Your support keeps your child interested, enthusiastic, and active.


Ask your friends and family to join 4-H with you!  If you would like to be involved in 4-H, your first step is finding a club or asking an adult to start a new club.  Talk to existing 4-H adult volunteers or youth members and visit one of their meetings.  If you are new to our 4-H program or want to start your own club, please contact the 4-H staff to help you find a club or project area you’ll enjoy.
