The mission of the 4-H Youth Development Program is to create supportive learning environments in which diverse youth and adults reach their fullest potential as capable, competent, caring citizens. Youth in 4-H Programs range from five to nineteen years of age. In Ontario County the 4-H program priorities are Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); Workforce Development; and Positive Youth Development. There is a full range of delivery methods that includes: traditional 4-H clubs; a 4-H camp; after school programs in Geneva; school enrichment through Conservation Field Days and community outreach through workshops like Tractor Safety.
You need at least five young people 5-to-19 years old and two adult leaders who are willing to help, to start your own 4-H club on a topic that interests you!
There are lots of ways that adult volunteers can have an impact on the life of a young person in 4-H! Apply today to be a 4-H volunteer!
