 What Exactly is 4-H? 

The Network of Families that Grow Great Kids!

4-H is a membership of youth across Kansas learning leadership, citizenship,clover and life skills. Caring adults that support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential based on knowledge, guidance, respect, and skills they share with our youth.

Each of the four H's of the clover represent ways youth gain self-confidence, self-esteem, grow and develop.             Not to mention good friends along the way!

  • Head, critical thinking, problem solving.
  • Heart, self-discipline, integrity,communication.
  • Hands,serving our community and others.
  • Health, choosing healthy lifestyles.
