The 4-H movement began around the start of the 20th Century and revolutionized how science was taught—outside of the classroom and through practical, hands-on programs and experiences. 4-H was also one of the first organizations in America that taught young people leadership skills and how to positively impact their communities.Learn More
4-H prepares young people to step up to the challenges in their workplace, community, and the world. Using research-driven programming around positive youth development, 4-H youth get the hands-on experience they need to become tomorrow’s leaders.

With a network of more than 6 million youth, 540,000 volunteers, 3,600 professionals, and more than 60 million alumni, 4-H helps shape youth to move our country and the world forward in ways that no other youth organization can.
