4-H Youth Development
4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. Fueled by research-driven programming, 4-H’ers engage in hands-on learning activities in the areas of science, citizenship and healthy living.
4-H teaches youth ages 5–18 life skills with the support of caring adult volunteers.
4-H is for all youth ages 8 to 18. We also have a non-competitive Cloverbuds (PDF) program for youth ages 5 to 7.
Joining is easy:
- Choose a project.
- Fill out the 4-H Interest Form (PDF).
- Send the form to our office or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will contact you with information on 4-H clubs in your area.
