"From my experience in 4-H I have learned communication skills and how to work with many types of people. This has taught me a lot of self-confidence and brought me out of my shell. I've also been taught self-discipline and been able to manage time better to get things done in a timely fashion."
–Greene County 4-H member
4-H began over 100 years ago, and has since grown into the largest youth development program in the nation. 4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community and around the world through hands-on experiences alongside their peers and caring adults. Backed by a network of more than 6 million youth, 540,000 adult volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 60 million alumni; 4-H delivers research-based programming around
positive youth development. 4-H is delivered through America's 109 land-grant universities and the
Cooperative Extension Service—reaching every corner of our nation. In Indiana, 4-H can be found in all 92 counties as delivered through
Purdue Extension. Community clubs, afterschool programs, school enrichment, camps/workshops, and special interest programs are all ways youth across Indiana can be involved with the 4-H program.
