4-H Youth and Development
Our 4-H program provides a creative a supportive environment in which culturally diverse youth and adults can reach their full potential. Our local county program works to develop life skills to help young people become self-directed, productive citizens. We also work to empower adult volunteers who multiply the efforts of our local county Extension staff.
The population of Taos County is growing very rapidly. An influx of people to the county has called attention to the fact that more activities are needed for youth in order to curtail the risk of youth falling prey to gang activity, teen pregnancy, crime and similar "at risk" situations. . In order to prepare all our youth to become knowledgeable, productive citizens, they must possess basic life skills. 4-H is challenged to help youth gain knowledge and skills in consumerism, nutrition, personal development, animal science, plant science, natural science, engineering, and creative arts.
During the 2020-2021 4-H year the number of 4-H youth between the ages of 5 & 19 during was 85 and there were 58 4-H adult volunteer leaders enrolled in the Taos County 4-H program. .
