What is 4-H?

A 4-H club is a group of young people and adults who meet regularly for fun and learning. Clubs are usually made up of families from a community and often formed around schools, churches or community centers. Most clubs hold monthly meetings attended by members and their parents. Club members elect officers who lead the group and the meetings. An adult club leader advises the officers. The meetings usually last less than two hours. The time is equally divided among club business, recreation and educational programs. A well-organized 4-H club meeting provides opportunities for every member to be involved.


4-H is . . .

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