Wendy Hein

For more than 100 years, 4-H has assisted youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to find their "spark" and become self-directing, productive members of society. 4-H is an informal, practical, learn-by-doing educational program for youth.

With over 150 clubs and almost 70 project areas, there is something for everyone in the 4-H program!

What is 4-H?

With more than 6 million members, 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth program in the United States. 4-H empowers young people with hands-on learning experiences to help them grow and thrive. By creating a safe and welcoming environment, young people develop the skills needed to make a positive impact on the world around them.
