4-H Youth Development


The goal of the 4-H program is to extend agricultural education to rural youth by organizing boys and girls clubs and through “learning by doing". The UF/IFAS Extension mission is to develop youth programs using a learn-by-doing approach in order to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. Florida 4-H aspires to be the leading youth development program that creates positive change in youth, families, and communities. Be apart of something amazing - join today!!
