What is 4-H?

4-H is the largest youth organization in world.  All 50 states and over 80 countries worldwide have 4-H programs.  Open to all youth between the ages of 9 and 19, 4-H offers informal educational activities to help young people develop as individuals and responsible, productive citizens. In 4-H, participants "learn by doing" which involves a lot of hands on activities. "Cloverbuds" is a program for 5 to 8 year-olds and introduces the 4-H learning experience through a non-competitive educational program.


Educational programs are offered throughout the year which provides opportunities to meet new people from your community, other counties across Oklahoma and the nation.  4-H is for everyone and has something just right for you.  4-H can be a family affair.
