4-H Youth Development

4-H is a nationwide program led by state land-grant universities in cooperation with local county/district extension councils. In Kansas, 4-H is the largest youth educational program, aside from public schools. Each of the four H's on the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop in 4-H

4-H is open to all youth ages 7-19. There is no fee to be a 4-H member, simply choose a club to join. 4-H organizes for the new year each October 1. Clubs meet monthly to share their projects, teach parliamentary procedures, or carry out community service projects.

4-H uses research-based project information to empower youth to do things they've never done before in a creative and confident way. 4-H doesn't have a membership fee, although some projects may have costs associated with them. Best of all, you can choose your level of participation - as much or as little as you have time for.

4-H teaches youth to analyze information, make decisions, communicate effectively, prepare for careers, serve their communities and plan for healthy lifestyles - all while they're having fun. So go ahead, get involved in 4-H and have some fun!
