4-H Youth Development
4-H is the largest youth organization worldwide, reaching all 50 states and 80 countries. Through UI Extension, 4-H reaches every county in Idaho.
Members have fun and make new friends while gaining leadership, citizenship and useful life skills through a wide variety of projects.
4-H is open year-round to youths ages 5-18 without regard to race, creed, gender, marital status, handicaps or disadvantages, economic or ethnic backgrounds.

- Attending college
- Contributing to their communities
You can enroll in 4-H at any time throughout the year. Some projects have enrollment deadlines in order for members to show them during the county fair.
