4-H Grows Here

Quick Links

What is 4-H?

4-H is United States’ largest youth organization with about 6 million members. It is in every state that has a Land Grant University. Here in NC, N. C. State and NC A& T support the 100 counties and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. The 4-H programs created by these universities incorporate the 4-H’s: Head, Heart, Hands, and Health, to help the members become leaders and obtain lifelong skills.

4-H provides an opportunity for a young person to learn more about his/her interest and have a chance to complete a project. 4-H Clubs accomplish this by creating a  positive environment where the members receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. For your child to be involved in 4-H, he/she will have to be between the ages of 5 and 18 as of January 1 of the current year.
