What is 4-H


About 4-H

 4-H is the largest youth organization in the United States with over 7 million participants. 4-H is best identified by its green four-leaf clover with an H on each leaf. The four H's on the emblem stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. 4-H is the only youth organization based at land-grant universities and the first experience many youth have with higher education.

4-H is a fun program where you get to "Learn by Doing. You can be a part of 4-H wherever you live. All youth between the ages of 5 and 18 are invited to join! In 4-H you can go to camp, ride in a bike rodeo,raise an animal, create a blog, give a presentation, participate in a community service project, develop your resume, practice interview skills, learn about healthy eating habits, build lifelong friendships. Best of all, member expenses are minimal, and you are not required to purchase a uniform.


How do I Join?


There are many ways:

  • Join a 4-H club in your area.
  • Start a 4-H club . . . just 5 members and an adult is all you need!
  • Join a special interest group--a group that gets together for a short time to learn about one thing, or to participate in one activity!
  • In your school, look for 4-H school enrichment programs!
  • Your local county 4-H agent is your key to getting started in 4-H.  She can tell you what clubs already exist in your town, what projects are being worked on or how to start a new club.
