What is 4-H?
Brown County 4-H Youth Development is part of the largest youth program in the world! We are grounded in the belief that youth learn best by DOING. Youth complete hands on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture, arts, and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on leadership roles. Youth can concentrate on one focus area, or they can try a variety of projects throughout their 4-H experience.
Regardless of the project area, all 4-H programs include mentoring, life skill development and career readiness as core elements.

Every child has the potential to be a true leader. Here in Brown County, we follow the national 4-H program's goal to empower kids with the skills they need to lead in life.

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.
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!
