  • 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 Mission

    The mission of the 4-H Youth Development Program is to provide Oklahoma youth, families, and communities with educational programs which will create environments for diverse audiences of youth and adults to reach their fullest potential by developing and enhancing skills for living.

  • 4-H Clubs

    We have many clubs in Oklahoma County and I think you will find that we have a club that will meet the needs of your family. 4-H offers many opportunities for youth and families to learn new things, make new friends, participated in leadership roles and community service, besides just having fun. Our programs encourage family involvement through club participation, taking the leadership for a club educational program or providing snacks. Each club requests a $1 fee to cover annual insurance while members are attending and participating in the regular club meeting. Some clubs will also ask for a participation fee to cover annual program expenses.
