What 4-H is all about...and how to join

4-H is a non-formal educational youth program, conducted by the University of California Cooperative Extension as authorized by federal and state statutes. In each county, the Local Extension Staff (County Director, 4-H Youth Advisor, and 4-H Program Representative) has the authority to administer the program in accordance with University and Extension policy.  The purpose of 4-H is to help young people discover and develop their potential.  4-H encourages young people to set their own goals and make their own plans and decisions.

This helps youth mature and build their self-confidence.  By being part of a group, 4-H'ers learn to understand other people and to cooperate with them. These are two basic skills for a happy, useful life.
