4-H in Piscataquis County

4-H is the youth development education program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. 4-H participants range from ages 5 to 19 and, traditionally, organize themselves into 4-H clubs to support each other as they take on “learn-by-doing” projects. Young people can also become involved in 4-H through 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camps, by creating individual 4-H projects of their own, and many other activities. 4-H teaches young people life skills necessary for success in life. For more information about how you can become involved in 4-H, contact us or visit UMaine Extension 4-H.
