4-H Youth Development
4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. 4-H is a non-formal, practical educational program for youth. Florida 4-H is the youth development program of Florida Cooperative Extension, a part of the University of Florida IFAS. Walton County 4-H prides itself in having a diverse selection of opportunities ranging from animal projects, public speaking, shooting sports and art!
According to the 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development conducted by Tufts University young people in 4-H report better grades, are twice as likely to go to college, and are more likely to pursue future courses in a career in science, engineering, or computer technology. 4-H youth are twice as likely to make healthy choices and give back to their community as compared to non-4-H'ers. How can YOU Make the Best Better!
