4-H Youth Development
. . . . .
In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America's largest youth development organization, empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. with the skills to lead for a lifetime. Through hands-on experiential learning opportunities with supportive adult relationships, 4-H focuses on teaching youth citizenship, leadership, and life skills. As part of UF/IFAS Extension, 4-H is open to all youth ages 5-18 regardless of race, creed, color, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, or national origin.
