About 4-H

4-H is a Community

4-H is delivered by the University of California Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult volunteers and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids experience 4-H in every county and parish in the country—through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4-H camps.

In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that youth will use throughout their lives. Whether youth are building rockets, raising companion dogs, or planting vegetables, 4-H gives young people the skills they need to thrive and succeed.

Cost, Time, Commitment and Required Materials

Getting involved with 4-H is easy and costs are kept to a minimum. Unlike other youth organizations, 4-H doesn’t require a uniform and there are no national fees. Children select their 4-H education project so they can choose one that works well within a family’s budget. 4-H programs and clubs typically meet once per week or once per month, although some may choose to meet more or less frequently. 4-H programs are available for children ages 5-18.
