4-H Youth Development


The 4-H/Youth Development program creates opportunities and supportive environments for youth and adults to become capable, competent and caring citizens. The emphasis is on "hands-on" learning that focuses on the youth's area of interest. Programs are conducted with the help of parents, adult volunteer leaders and professional staff who organize educational experiences. Youth participate in organized 4-H clubs, special interest and project groups, 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camp and other special activities.

Fayette County 4-H programs and events (including, but not limited to clubs, classes and camps) are for residents or students of Fayette County only. If you are not a resident or student of Fayette County, please check with your home county about the 4-H Programs available for your child.
