4-H Youth Development

4-H Youth Development

​​​​​​​​4-H is a learn-by-doing, fun, educational program designed to help youth in their growth and development and to compliment experiences received at home, school and other organizations.  With the help of caring adult volunteers, 4-H clubs help young people gain the skills they need to be successful.  ​​​​​​​

There are currently approximately 50 4-H clubs in Oakland County where members work with a large variety of project areas.    A 4-H project can focus on just about any subject as long as there are interested youth and a screened volunteer willing to teach.  Some examples of current Oakland County 4-H club project focus areas include aerospace, community service, horses, science and technology and special needs programs. Click here to open a printable list of current Oakland County 4-H clubs.
