San Bernardino County 4-H General Information


4-H is a youth development program that was created in 1902 to teach future generations techniques that they could use in the real world. These techniques fall into three areas: citizenship, leadership, and life skills.

4-H is an organization for youth, ages 5 - 19, that promotes  hands-on learning and utilizes the volunteer skills of parents, community partners, and other youth organizations. 4-H welcomes all youth and adult leaders from all backgrounds and all locales regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition, ancestory, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or status as a covered veteran.

The San Bernardino County 4-H Youth Development Program was chartered on January 1, 1957. Currently, the program has  12 clubs throughout the county. With a variety of projects and events offered in the program, there is a learning opportunity for everyone.
