There is a tremendous need for young people to drive the economy, innovate and invest their energy to solve real-world issues. This is true across every industry – from business to fashion to agriculture.
As the youth development program of USDA and Cooperative Extension, 4-H empowers youth, in rural and urban communities, to understand how agriculture affects daily life and prepares them with skills to pursue agriculture careers.
Through hands-on experiences, youth gain exposure to agriculture and STEM topics. 4-H brings interactive experiences to youth at scale across America, preparing the next generation of agri-science leaders.
