Minnesota 4-H youth development offers age-appropriate, hands-on learning via short-and long-term projects and activities, including:
- 4-H clubs
- Special-interest groups
- After-school programs
- Civic engagement
- Community service
- School enrichment
In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique, learn-by-doing model teaches kids essential, transferrable skills that they'll use throughout their lives, such as problem solving, decision making, coping, communicating and responding to the needs of others.
Whether youth are building rockets, raising dairy cows, or writing musical plays, 4-H gives them the skills they need to succeed in life.
