4H Green Guarantee
Youth involved in the 4-H program will tell you it's fun. Their parents will tell you that through participation in club, project, and other educational activities, their children not only have fun in 4-H, but learn practical, technical, and life skills. With more than 6.5 million youth involved, 4-H is the largest informal educational program for children in the world.

Developing leadership, character, and good citizenship in America's youth through a learning by doing approach is what makes 4-H so successful and so much fun for the children that are involved. Boys and girls in grades kindergarten through one year after high school graduation can be a 4-H member. Whether you live in the city, a suburb, in the country, or on a farm, 4-H offers a wide range of educational projects and activities. In fact, the possibilities are MORE THAN YOU IMAGINED!
