What is 4-H?

4-H is the largest youth organization in the nation, open to youth grades 3rd - 12th grades and administered by the OSU Extension. Through 4-H, youth learn valuable life skills that enable them to grow into productive citizens. Through hands-on learning opportunities in many different areas of interest, youth develop critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, set and achieve goals, and learn responsibility.

 

Although 4-H is deeply rooted in agricultural practices, its not cows, plows and sows anymore. Today's 4-H youth can still be found showing steers, but also using GPS units, teaching others about drug and alcohol prevention, traveling, taking photographs and giving speeches.

 

4-H offers fun and unique opportunities to enhance life skills through age-appropriate activities.  Youth also have the opportunity to be part of the county officers and ambassadors, a team specifically for youth grades 7th to 12th that meet for service projects and fun outings.  Junior 4-H members, grades 3rd - 6th, can attend 4-H camp and Jr Roundup by earning points through participation in 4-H activities throughout the year.  For those youth ages 5 to 7, the Cloverbud program provides an introduction to 4-H activities through a non-competitive format.

 

4-H is . . . 

  • Learning by doing.
  • Having fun.
  • Making new friends.
  • Developing volunteerism.
  • Becoming a leader.
  • Practicing responsibility.
  • Solving problems.
  • Making the best better.
