The University of Maine Cooperative Extension and 4H Logo

4-H is the youth development education program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. 4-H is the largest youth organization in the world! Any youth ages 5-18 can participate in “learn by doing” projects. There are a number of ways for youth to participate in 4-H including club programming, school enrichment programs, camps, creating individual projects, and many other activities.

4-H youth can

  • develop leadership skills
  • participate in a community service project
  • learn about science, from animals to aerospace
  • travel to attend national youth events
  • learn many useful skills such as computers, managing money, sewing, cooking, animal care, or starting a business

For more information about the Hancock County 4-H Program and clubs, please contact Rosemarie Evans, 4-H Community Education Assistant, at 1.800.287.1479 (in Maine) or 207.667.8212 or by email at rosemarie.evans@maine.edu.


4-H VOLT Training

A 4-H Volunteer Training is scheduled for Friday, November 17th, time to be announced, at the Extension Office.  If you know of anyone that would like the training, please contact the Extension Office as soon as possible.  It is a great opportunity to be trained as a leader, as a helper, or just to learn more about 4-H.  It is a fun, interactive, and informative day.  The training does not mean you have to be a leader of your own club, but does give you several options.
