The Answer People
These days, 4-H'ers across the nation are responding to challenges every day in their communities and their world. With an expansive network reaching every corner of the U.S., 4-H is the nation's largest youth development organization. More than six million 4-H'ers in urban neighborhoods, suburban schoolyards, and rural farming communities stand out among their peers: they are building revolutionary opportunities and implementing community-wide change at an early age. Here in New Mexico, more than 70,000 youth participate in 4-H!
