What is 4-H?

In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America's largest youth development organization - empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. with the skills to lead for a lifetime.
The mission of the Brown County 4-H Program is to provide opportunities for personal growth and to encourage the positive development of youth, their families, and their communities. Brown County 4-H Youth Development is a community of young people, being mentored by adults, coming together to have fun while learning life and leadership skills - from kindergarten through 13th grade!


Brown County 4-H provides opportunities for personal growth of young people throughout Brown
County, and encourages the positive development of youth, families, and their communities. Through
hands-on, experiential learning, we offer more than 300 programs and projects for youth, 5K through
13th grade, and their families, in a variety of methods.

Projects include, but are not limited to, STEM, citizenship and leadership, healthy living, animal
science, communications and arts, shooting sports and wildlife, home and community education, and
gardening. For more information, or to get involved as a member/family or volunteer, contact
