Welcome to 4-H & Youth DevelopmentHappy 4-H'ers

4-H is the youth development education program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension.  4-H participants range in age from 5 to 19 and traditionally have organized themselves into 4-H clubs to support one another as they take on “learning-by-doing” projects.

Young people may also become involved in 4-H through school enrichment programs, 4-H camps, by creating individual projects on their own, and a variety of other activities.
