4-H & Youth Development

4-H youth development is a dynamic non-formal education program which teaches life skills through leadership and citizenship opportunities in a fun environment. 4-H youth learn effective communication skills, positive self-esteem, a solid sense of personal responsibility, and the ability to make sound decisions.
