The 4-H Youth Development Program provides Oklahoma youth, families, and communities with educational programs that create environments for diverse audiences of youth and adults to reach their fullest potential. 4-H focuses on developing youth as individuals and responsible, productive citizens by involving youth in community-based clubs, school enrichment programs and both group and individual projects to develop the individuals four "H's" - Head, Heart, Hands and Health.

 

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.

 

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.
