4-H Youth Development
Our 4-H Youth Development program is a dynamic non-formal education program. It provides opportunities for youth to acquire life skills and gain knowledge while having fun. The life skills learned in 4-H enable youth to become productive, well-informed, self-reliant, responsible adults.
We encourage all youth in the county to join our programs. The following are the age classifications per group:
