What is 4-H?

4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. It reaches more than seven million youth.

4-H 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.


Today’s 4-H is for all youth between the ages of eight and 18 years. Kids between ages five and seven can join Cloverbuds, a non-competitive 4-H program.

Contact Tina Holmquist to learn more about 4-H in Canyon County or submit this interest form.
