What is 4-H?
The Marin County 4-H program helps young people, ages 5-19, reach their fullest potential as competent, confident individuals who contribute to and are connected with their communities.
In 4-H programs, youth serve in leadership roles where they set goals, develop plans, complete projects, and reflect on their experiences.
Using an experiential educational model, 4-H helps youth develop essential skills that they will use throughout their lives, such as identifying and nurturing interests, desiring knowledge, setting goals, self-reflection, adapting to new situations, communicating, and responding to the needs of others.

"HEAD – HEART – HANDS - HEALTH":
Whether youth participate in clubs, after school programs, day camps, or in other program settings, the 4-H Youth Development Program's mission and goals remain the same: "to help youth develop to their full potential"
True leaders aren't born; they're grown
