What is 4-H?

4-H is a national organization for youth ages 5-18 to learn lifeskills through hands-on project-based work. The University of Maine Cooperative Extension conducts the most successful out-of-school educational program in Maine. As the youth development arm of UMaine Extension, 4-H has always emphasized the importance of building the life skills needed to be successful adults. Today, 4-H also is focused on science and technology to help foster interest in these areas as avenues to successful careers. 4-H makes science fun and exciting for everyone.
