UC ANR 4-H Youth Development Program
What is 4-H?
Young people in 4-H are uniquely prepared to step up to the challenges of a rapidly changing world. 4-H members choose among hundreds of hands-on projects with focuses on science, engineering, and technology; agriculture and natural resources; animal science education; nutrition and healthy living; citizenship and service-learning; and leadership and public speaking. Through experiential learning and leading together with adult mentors, youth focus their energy into their passions while also giving back to the community. Members have the opportunity to participate in the 4-H program through after school programs, community clubs, camps, events, conferences, and military partnership programs.
