4-H Ventura County

Welcome! What is 4-H?
4-H is an exciting educational program for youth ages 5 to 19. Through hands-on learning and positive youth-adult partnerships, youth acquire knowledge and develop life skills that enable them to find and focus their energy into their passions while also giving back to the community.
The 4-H Youth Development Program is administered by the University of California Cooperative Extension, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and county government. The first 4-H club began in Ohio in 1902. Ventura County 4-H started in the early 1900s.
COVID-19 In Person Update

The University of California 4-H Youth Development has relaxed some of the guidelines for in-person 4-H activities in accordance with State of California and University of California. The limited resumption of in-person activities will ensure the 4-H program continues to provide safe learning environments to protect youth and adults, while at the same time allowing for increased engagement and opportunities to build relationships and engage our communities.

Please review the Basic Safety Standards for Meeting In-person
