What is 4-H?

4-H is open to youth ages 5-18. It is the Cooperative Extension Service’s dynamic and educational program for youth (Research impacts 4-H).

4-H has about 6 million youth members across the United States. The name 4-H is summarized as the four-fold development of youth through the Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.

What do youth do in 4-H?

4-H youth complete hands-on projects in areas like healthy living, STEM, agriculture, and civic engagement in a positive environment, where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on leadership roles. Through these experiences, youth build life skills. View our 4-H Project Guidebook.

For the 4-H Awards Handbook and project record forms for ages 8-18 visit the 4-H Awards and Incentives webpage.
