Marin County 4-H Program

Marin Calendars (3)

The Marin County 4-H program helps young people, ages 5-18, reach their fullest potential as competent, confident individuals who contribute to and are connected with their communities. In 4-H programs, youth set goals, develop plans, complete projects, and reflect on their experiences. Youth are encouraged to discover their passions, adopt a growth mindset, and practice self-reflection. Read more in the UC 4-H Family Handbook
