4-H is one of the largest youth development programs in America with more than 6.5 million young people ages 5-19, and 540,000 youth and adult volunteers. 4-H serves youth throughout California in urban, suburban and rural communities.

Youth learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through more than 50 projects and topics as varied as rocketry, public speaking, photography, animal science, nutrition and service learning.

4-H's learning opportunities are intentionally designed around four essential elements necessary for positive youth development by providing youth with supervised independence, a sense of belonging with a positive group, a spirit of generosity toward others and a wide variety of opportunities to master life challenges.

For Adults: 

4-H is a volunteer organization that depends on the dedication of adults who donate their time, energy, and enthusiasm to make 4-H programs come alive in their community. Our volunteers assist youth in becoming responsible, self-directed and productive members of society.
