WHAT IS 4-H?                                                  

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills as they work in partnership with caring adults. In 4-H, youth between the ages of 5-18 complete hands-on projects in areas like healthy living, science, agriculture and civic engagement in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult volunteers.


The 4-H Youth Development Program, part of UF/IFAS Extension Seminole County, offers a variety of youth programming, including community clubs, afterschool programming, in-school enrichment, short-term special interest (SPIN) clubs, camps, and more. Youth members and parents/guardians can follow these steps to get involved in Seminole County 4-H.
