The 4-H Youth Development program creates opportunities and supportive environments for youth and adults to become capable, competent and caring citizens.  4-H emphasizes "hands-on" learning that focuses on the youth's area of interest. Programs are conducted with the help of parents, adult volunteer leaders and professional staff who organize educational experiences. Youth participate in organized 4-H clubs, special interest and project groups, 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camp and other special activities.  Anyone between the ages of 9-19 years old can join 4-H.  We also have programs for younger and older audiences.
