4-H Youth Development
4-H is part of UGA Extension in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. 4-H assists young people to acquire knowledge, develop life skills, and form attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society through "hands-on" learning experiences.
