4-H is a community of more than 6.5 million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. The 4-H community also includes 3,500 staff, 538,000 volunteers and 60 million alumni.
4-Hers participate in fun, hands-on learning activities supported by the latest research of land-grant universities that are focused on three areas: healthy living, citizenship, and science, engineering and technology.
Youth can experience 4-H by becoming a member of a 4-H club, attending a 4-H camp, or joining school-based or after-school 4-H programs. 4-Hers can compete with their projects in contests at the local, state, regional or national levels and also attend conferences and events.
