What is 4-H?

4-H provides kids with community, mentors, and learning opportunities to develop the skills they need to create positive change in their lives and in their communities.

     The Purdue Extension-Jackson County 4-H Program is open to all youth in grades 3-12 (Mini 4-H is offered to grades K-2).  4-H programming is tailored to the interests the youth in our community. 4-H members are guided by adult volunteers using hands-on, learn-by-doing, all-inclusive programming that helps to develop skills they will use for a lifetime. Using programming provided by Purdue Extension-Jackson County, youth experience 4-H through community clubs, in-school and afterschool programs, 4-H camps, and many more!
