What is 4-H?

Head, Heart, Hands and Health

Whether youth participate in clubs, projects, after school programs, day camps, or other program settings, the 4-H Youth Development Program's mission and goals remain the same... to help youth develop their full potential and find their SPARK!

 4-H Youth Development is a non-formal educational youth program, conducted by the University of California Cooperative Extension.  The purpose of 4-H Youth Development is to help diverse young people discover and develop their potential and grow into competent, contributing, and caring citizens.  Learn by doing activities, youth-adult partnerships, and research-based educational programs help young people enhance their leadership abilities and develop a wide range of other life skills.  

WHY: leadership/citizenship development; life skills education; strengthening youth-families-communities; advancing the field of youth development 

HOW: experiential education ("learn by doing"); bridging research and practice; building partnerships for programming and funding; cross-age learning and teaching; youth-adult partnerships.

WHERE: school enrichment programs; community clubs; special interest projects and programs; school-aged child care; camp experiences; independent study; distance learning.
