4-H Youth Development

What is 4-H?

4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. It reaches more than seven million youth. The program helps youth gain knowledge, develop life skills and form attitudes to become productive members of society. Research-based programs give youth the hands-on, real world experience they need to be leaders.


Youth: 4-H is for youth between the ages of eight and 18 years. Kids between ages five and seven can join Cloverbuds, a non-competitive 4-H program. Get started with our 4-H Interest Form or contact Kristi Mire at 208-287-5900.

Adults: Adults may volunteer as project leaders, fair supervisors, day camp teachers and chaperones for 4-H events. Get started with our 4-H Interest Form or contact Kristi Mire at 208-287-5900.
