4-H Quick Look


What is 4-H?
4-H is a positive youth development organization for kids aged 5-19 that empowers young people to reach their full potential. 4-H enables youth to emerge as leaders through hands-on learning, research-based 4-H youth programs and adult mentorship, in order to give back to their local communities. Youth are able to build self-esteem, connect with their community, develop leadership skills, make friends, share interests and gain valuable knowledge that will help guide them through life and be the best they can be.

Youth can join a 4-H Club in:
Altadena, Agoura, Beverly Hills, Downey, Eagle Rock, Northridge, Palos Verdes, Pomona, San Pedro and all throughout the Antelope Valley.  Once a youth joins a club, they enroll in “projects” in their areas of interest. Los Angeles County 4-H has many projects for youth including (but not limited to):

Agriculture, Public Speaking, Livestock, Pet Care, 4-H Camps, Sewing, Cooking, Science, Engineering, Robotics, Healthy Living, Cycling, Karate, Community Service, Leadership, Wildlife, Zoology, Life Skills and much more!

How much does it cost for youth to join a 4-H Club?

How can I volunteer to lead a project for 4-H or start a 4-H club in my area?
We need adult volunteers LIKE YOU to play a vital role and make a lasting difference in the lives of local youth. Becoming a volunteer Project or Community Club 4-H Leader will make a permanent impact on the leaders of tomorrow. This opportunity allows you to give back to the community, and share your wealth of life experience and talents that we all can learn from. The time commitment is a minimum of three hours per month, and potential volunteers go through a fingerprinting/background check and orientation before beginning their volunteer adventure! Contact the Los Angeles County 4-H Office at (626) 586-1980 to find out more.
