See this page in: English

In 4-H, all youth are welcome

4-H is an out-of-school, hands-on learning program for youth ages 5-19. Youth choose a project that’s interesting to them and explore it with peers and caring adults. 4-H clubs are groups of youth who want to learn together and meet in every part of Minnesota.

What can I do in 4-H?

The sky’s the limit! 4-H offers learning experiences in STEM, animal science and agriculture, healthy living, civic engagement and much more. We have one-day events, year-long projects and everything in between. Choose one of these learning experiences to see what’s available:

How do I join 4-H?

You can fill out a registration form at any 4-H event or meeting you want to attend. Better yet, become a 4-H member to open up a host of resources and opportunities such as showcase and judging experiences, scholarships, leadership trips and more.
