What is 4-H?

The 4-H Youth Development program creates opportunities and supportive environments for youth and adults to become capable, competent and caring citizens.  The emphasis is "hands-on" learning that focuses on the youth's area of interest.  Programs are conducted with the help of parents, adult volunteer leaders and professional staff who organize educational experiences.  Youth participate in organized 4-H clubs, special interest and project groups, 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camp and other special activities. 


Youth can join a 4-H club anytime throughout the year and joining is easy - just show up at a club meeting and the leaders will help you complete the necessary paperwork! The active 4-H clubs in Simpson County are listed on the left-hand side.
