4-H is the non-formal youth development education program of the United States Department of Agriculture and the University of Arizona. Whether you live in the city, the suburbs, or on a farm/ranch, you can belong to the 4-H Program. 4-H helps youth develop through the mentoring and involvement of parents, teens, and other volunteers. They involve youth in organizing and conducting learning experiences in a community setting.
Hands-on Learning is the basic design of 4-H educational programs. Participants learn by doing projects that are designed to fit the needs of youth at different ages.
Benefits offered by 4-H programs have been tested with diverse audiences and have met stringent educational objectives and are researched based.
Life Skills are part of all programs. Most have been designed to meet one or more of the following life skills: Build Self Confidence;
Learn to Make Decisions;
Develop an Inquiring Mind;
Relate to Others; and
Develop Concern for the Community.
Cross Age Learning is important in 4-H. Most 4-H programs have been designed so that older youth can learn skills and teach younger participants.
