Solano County 4-H
Youth Development Program

The 4-H Youth Development Program is a non profit youth educational program administered through the UC Cooperative Extension. In 4-H, kids learn, have FUN, and run the show! 4-H is an international organization for youth that promotes hands-on learning, for ages 5-19, from all ethnic, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds who live in rural, suburban, and urban communities.

The four H's in 4-H stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.

The 4-H program provides youth with a variety of learning experiences that contribute to their personal growth and development. The program helps them to become self-reliant, responsible, and productive members of society.

Age appropriate projects within each club are the heart of 4-H's hands-on learning. Each project focuses on a topic - anything from art to zoology - including: animal sciences, bicycling, camping, computers, drama, entomology, leadership, music, photography, quilting, rocketry, textile arts, and woodworking to name a few. These opportunities are designed to be fun while teaching real life skills. Projects are lead by older youth and/or adult volunteers.

Programming varies from county to county, year to year. There are special policies regarding participation, competition, and animal projects for primary members.

For more information on how you can become involved in 4-H, please complete this Information Survey.
