4-H Programs and Projects
4-H programs focus on:
- Science, Engineering and Technology
- Healthy living
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:
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.
Please visit the UI Extension 4-H Youth Development website for a full list of projects, then contact Tina Miller to check for local availability.
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.
Manuals and Guides
Your 4-H leader or county 4-H staff member will have a list of project manuals or guides. Some project activities are online and manuals can also be ordered.
