4-H is America's largest youth development organization   

4‑H is a Community for all Kids

In 4‑H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us.

4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. For more than 100 years, 4‑H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better.

Through life-changing 4‑H programs, nearly six million kids have taken on critical societal issues, such as addressing community health inequities, engaging in civil discourse and advocating for equity and inclusion for all.


4-H: The Youth Solution

Thousands of Palm Beach County youth between the ages of 5 and 18 benefit from 4-H each year.  4-H staff, volunteers and our partners create a wealth of opportunities that help young people learn and grow.  Clubs, afterschool programs, in-school programs, camps, fair, leadership opportunities and a wide array of special events serve as opportunities for children to develop Competence, Confidence, Character, Caring and Connection.   By using a “learn-by-doing” approach that focuses on fun, hands-on, real world activities youth are able to explore subjects they love while gaining critical life skills.

Palm Beach County 4-H is a partnership between University of Florida/IFAS Extension Service and Palm Beach County Government.  Together, in collaboration with a diverse team of local, state and federal partners we utilize the latest research based information to create intentional, long-term, positive youth development opportunities.
