4-H Youth Development Program

4-H is a program of the University of California Cooperative Extention (UCCE) which is a collaboration between Federal, State, and County governments.  Each County maintains a Cooperative Extension office with 4-H staff who conduct research and extend knowledge in their areas of expertise.  The 4-H youth development staff work with volunteers to deliver the 4-H program in our county.

4-H is an educational program to assist youth in their development by

  • Providing learn-by-doing educational experiences.
  • Developing skills that benefit youth through out life.
  • Strengthening families and communities.
  • Fostering leadership and volunteerism in youth and adults.
  • Building partnerships for programming and funding.
  • Using research-based knowledge from the land-grant university system.

The 4-H program purpose is achieved through the development and support of leadership teams of staff, volunteers, youth, and others who organize and conduct educational project experiences in community and family settings.
