4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. 4-H is about having fun, learning, exploring, and discovering. In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, become leaders and help shape their communities.
More than 65,000 Texas youth are enrolled members of 4-H community clubs in Texas. Another 850,000 Texas youth get involved in 4-H through special educational opportunities at school, in after school programs, or at neighborhood or youth centers. These youth live in cities, suburbs, and rural communities.
4-H gives them a chance to pursue their own interests – from photography to computers, from building rockets to raising pigs. A list of 4-H projects is available online. They go places – to camp, to state and national conferences. They learn to be leaders and active citizens.
