4-H is for Everyone!
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.
