4-H Youth Development Program
The 4-H Experience
4-H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provide 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 mentors 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.
**Participants of all in-person 4-H meetings and events are encouraged to wear masks and social distance. Members and leaders must comply with county, tribal, and local health directives as well as CDC social distancing guidelines.
