4-H Youth Development
Santa Clara County 4-H: Something for Everyone
Join a 4-H Club near you.
4-H is a volunteer organization and we are thankful for our volunteers (18 years old +) who donate their time, energy, and enthusiasm to make 4-H programs come alive in their community. 4-H volunteers mentor youth and support them to become responsible, self-directed and productive members of society.
4-H is one of the largest youth development programs in the United States with more than 6.5 million young people ages 5-19, and 540,000 youth and adult volunteers. 4-H serves youth throughout California and in Santa Clara County in urban, suburban and rural communities.
Youth learn leadership, civic engagement and life skills by participating in a variety of activities and more than 50 projects as varied as computer science, leadership, public speaking, photography, animal science, cooking and service learning.
