4-H is the largest out-of school youth program in the United States. Although it began in the early 1900’s in rural areas with a focus on farming and homemaking, 4-H clubs today include engineering and computers. Kids learn how to work as a team and to give back to their communities.

  2. A Heart for the Community
  3. Healthy Relationships
  4. Creative Thinkers
