4-H Youth Development
4-H is a national program for youth ages 8 to 18. 4-H members have fun, learn by doing, make new friends and help others feel good about themselves.
Youth who participate in 4-H gain the confidence, compassion and connections with caring adults necessary to make contributions in their communities. 4-H is a leader in developing Idaho’s youth to become responsible, productive citizens — meeting the changing needs of a diverse society.
