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
