Getting involved with 4‑H is easy and costs are kept to a minimum. Unlike other youth organizations, 4‑H doesn't require a uniform and there are no national fees. Children select their 4‑H education project so they can choose one that works well within a family's budget. 4‑H programs and clubs typically meet once per week or once per month, although some may choose to meet more or less frequently. 4‑H programs are available for children ages 8-18.
You may think 4-H is only for your friends with animals, but it’s so much more! You can do activities like shooting sports, food science, healthy living, robotics, fashion, and photography. 4‑H clubs follow a planned program and offer multiple learning opportunities for youth that are self-directed. Clubs can meet in a variety of locations and typically meet in the evenings and on the weekends.
