4-H is the youth development education program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. Youth, ages 5 to 18, work on the four values of Head, Heart, Hands, and Health through fun “learning by doing” activities and projects.
Youth become involved in 4-H educational programs through:
- 4-H clubs
- School enrichment programs
- In and out of school programs
- Afterschool programs
- 4-H Learning Center and Camps
4-H also offers a variety of 4-H curricula for community clubs, schools, after-school settings, and other positive youth development organizations.
The 4-H Leaders Association meetings are a great opportunity to network with other leaders and to become involved in a deeper way with our Waldo County 4-H!
