Payne County 4-H
The mission of the 4-H Youth Development Program is to provide Oklahoma youth, families, and communities with educational programs that will create environments for diverse audiences of youth and adults to reach their fullest potential by developing and enhancing skills for living.
4-H is an organization for all youth, ages 8 and in the 3rd grade to 12 grade. It dedicates itself to the development of youth, encouraging them to recognize their strengths and weaknesses and to build a better self, community and world.
