What is 4-H?
4-H is an international youth leadership development organization. In the US it is available to youth, ages 5 – 18 wherever there are 4-H Clubs. 4-H is sponsored by Land Grant Universities in the various states. In California we partner with the University of California, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources/Cooperative Extension. 4-H provides youth in our communities with opportunities to learn by doing. This includes hands-on leadership of each 4-H Club and each project within the club with the guidance of adult 4-H Leaders. Clubs can be established as in-school, after school, home-schooled, or community 4-H Clubs. The highlights of a 4-Hers year are often 4-H Camp and the County Fair.
