What is 4-H?

A program to prepare youth for successful futures by engaging in fun, hands-on 4-H activities.

Volunteer in 4-H!

To volunteer, you don’t need to have previous experience. The most important qualifications are a desire to help young people learn new things, and wanting to provide youth with a safe and welcoming environment.
