For the 2018-2019 program year (beginning this July), we will be reinstating the programming committee to help plan and develop projects and events for San Joaquin County 4-H.  But we need your expertise to help make next year's program the best one yet!

There are eight programming areas on the committee, and each area will have one adult rep and one youth rep. 

  1. Large Animal Science
  2. Small Animal Science
  3. Equine Science and Companion & Service Dogs
  4. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics)
  5. Creative & Healthy Living
  6. Citizenship & Community Service
  7. Outdoor Activities & Camp
  8. Primary & New Members

Above the budgeted amount for existing programming, the County Council has approved $8000 to be spent on program development next year! As a representative, you'll be deciding how to spend that money and make our program more robust!

Our Mission

The University of California 4-H Youth Development Program engages youth in reaching their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development. 

4-H Word Scatter

Head, Heart, Hands, Health.  Growing Youth who Thrive.

4-H helps young people to reach their full potential as competent, confident, leaders of character who contribute and are connected to their communities.  4-H serves youth throughout California in urban, suburban and rural communities.

In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that youth will use  throughout their lives, such as identifying sparks, desiring knowledge, setting goals, self-reflection, adapting to new situations, communicating, and responding to the needs of others.

Whether youth are building rockets, raising companion dogs, or planting vegetables, 4-H gives young people the skills they need to thrive and succeed throughout their lives.

Core Values

The University of California 4-H Youth Development Program provides a wide variety of enrichment activities with the ultimate goal of giving youth the skills they need to thrive and succeed throughout their lives. The focus of all 4-H programs is positive youth development through activities in science literacy, healthy living, and citizenship.  All 4-H programs are accessible and open to all youth.  For more information about 4-H Core Values, visit Chapter 1: Mission and Direction in the 4-H Youth Development Program.
