What is 4-H?

 

4-H is an educational youth program focusing on the needs, interests, and concerns of young people. Our aim is to help Union youth gain a positive self-concept, develop social skills and decision-making abilities, and learn subject knowledge needed for a productive life. 4-H members develop leadership and citizenship skills through individual project work, group activities, community service, and school meetings. We are the youth division of the UGA Extension program.

4-H began as corn and tomato clubs, but has evolved to become the largest youth organization in the world. Visit the What is 4-H Page to learn more about the 4-H Program.
