4-H Club Resources

What are 4-H Clubs are why should my child join one?

4-H clubs are the foundation of the 4-H Youth Development Program.  A 4-H club is a group of five or more youth guided by two, screened adults. Over the course of the study that began in 2002, research revealed that, in comparison with other youth, young people in 4-H:

  • experience greater educational achievements
  • have greater motivation and aspirations for future education
  • are more civically active
  • are more than 3.3 times more likely to contribute to their communities
  • have significantly lower drug, cigarette, and alcohol use
  • are 2.3 times more likely to exercise and be physically active
  • report better grades and higher levels of academic competence
  • are nearly 2 times more likely to go to college
