4-H Programs and Projects

4-H Programs

4-H programs focus on:

  • Science, Engineering and Technology
  • Healthy living
  • Citizenship

4-H programs differ from 4-H projects because they include a variety of knowledge areas and are inclusive of many projects and events. They can target specific audiences, seek out community partnerships and have funding sources that provide resources.

4-H program areas in Idaho include:

4-H Projects

A project is a topic that you can explore. You’ll learn life skills like understanding yourself, communicating and working with others and problem solving and decision making skills that you will use for the rest of your life.

Choosing a 4-H Project

Think about what you like to do or what you are interested in and then look at the list of projects on this page.

Your 4-H leader and your parent can help you decide on a project, too. Be sure to check with your 4-H leader to find out if there are requirements for the project.

Completing Project Activities

You do not have to complete all of the activities in the project guide or manual. The member, parents and leader choose the activities.

You may plan to do a little or a lot based on your interests and abilities. Project plans and goals change as your interests change.

Time Commitment

How much time you spend on a project depends on the size and scope of a your plan and goals.

Some projects take a few days, weeks or even months. Some projects are repeated or undertaken again the following year to learn more and accomplish more goals.
