Positive challenges with proven methods

4-H is practical and hands-on. Youth work on learning projects and get involved in their communities. They also learn to lead and to teach.

4-H taps into the knowledge of the U.S. Cooperative Extension System and the University of Idaho, plus thousands of volunteers. Experts develop, review and test our programs.

Studies show that 4-H members give back to their communities. They speak with parents more and avoid risky behaviors. They get better grades and stay on track for college.

Wide availability

4-H is open year-round to youth ages 5 to 18. And 4-H is almost everywhere, from city to country and in between.

4-H is affordable. With county, state, federal and donated funds, fees are less than $50 per year for a whole family. (Some projects, programs and events have extra costs.)

Youth are welcome without regard to race, creed, gender, marital status, handicaps or disadvantages, economic or ethnic backgrounds.

How to join

Contact your UI Extension county office. Options and fees vary. Settings vary from clubs and Afterschool to camps and events.
