What is 4-H?

4-H is the largest youth development organization in the United States, with more than 6 million youth involved in various programs and project areas. 4-H is delivered by the 101 Cooperative Extension Offices across the state of North Carolina. We believe in the power of youth. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We empower them with leadership, communication and life skills that are needed to succeed in today’s world.

How do I get involved?

Getting involved in 4-H is really simple! There is no fee to join or uniforms required for participation. You can participate in 4-H in multiple ways:
