Kids experience 4‑H in every county in the country—through in-school and after-school programs, community clubs and events, 4‑H Camp & Learning Centers, and much more.

In Hancock County, 4-H youth build life skills by leading hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture, and civic engagement – helping them to grow confidence, independence, resilience, and compassion.
