4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is about having fun, learning, exploring and discovering. In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, become leaders and help shape their communities. Some 4-H youth work with animals, while others choose food, crafts, sports, or even technology! Whatever the project, 4-H members become active members of their community and make the best better.
