What is 4-H?

4-H youth programs provide opportunities for youth to develop skills they can use throughout their life. Iowa 4-H builds upon a century of experience as it fosters positive youth development that is based on the needs and strengths of youth, their families, and communities. 

Why Join 4-H?

Kids learn by doing in 4-H, with the help of positive adults. 4-H members join a learning community (commonly known as clubs) who help foster a fun, safe environment. Within their clubs, members can explore topics they are interested in and showcase what they learned at local and state events!
