4-H is a youth education program that provides children and young adults ages 5 to 18 the opportunity to learn skills they need to be productive members of society, good citizens and leaders of tomorrow. They learn these skills through 4-H projects like sewing, aerospace, computers, marine science and animal projects. Youth can become members of 4-H by joining a community 4-H club, by participating in a short-term special interest program, or by being part of a 4-H school enrichment classroom project.
Would your child like to raise a rabbit, learn horticulture, photography or sewing? Youngsters can join 4-H and take part in a variety of fun and educational projects. 4-H leaders come from all walks of life and include parents and community leaders. 4-H is a program the whole family can enjoy, and joining is as easy as calling the Extension 4-H Office at:

The UF/IFAS Extension 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. This mission is accomplished by creating safe and inclusive learning environments, involving caring adults, and utilizing the expertise and resources of the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system.
4-H accepts children ages 5 to 18. The child must be 5 years old by Sept. 1 of the current 4-H year to enroll. The 4-H year is Sept. 1 through Aug. 31
