4-H Youth Development

4H Clover-RGB-01
4-H helps young people to reach their full potential as competent, confident, leaders of character who contribute and are connected to their communities. We serve kids throughout California in urban, suburban and rural communities. Youth design and participate in their own programs and activities and this unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that they will use throughout their lives, such as identifying sparks, desiring knowledge, setting goals, self-reflection, adapting to new situations, communicating, and responding to the needs of others. Whether they're building rockets, raising companion dogs, or planting vegetables, 4-H gives young people the skills they need to thrive and succeed throughout their lives.
