4‑H empowers young people with the skills to lead for a lifetime.
In 4‑H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America’s largest youth development organization—empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. and over 88,000 youth in Kansas with the skills to lead for a lifetime.
It’s a research-based experience that includes a mentor, a hands-on project, and a meaningful leadership opportunity. Based on their interests and guided by adult volunteers, youth develop their own pathway in 4‑H. They select from a broad menu of local 4‑H programs and projects. There are hands-on, learn by doing, opportunities for everyone.
Kansas 4-H is a vibrant youth development program for K-State Research and Extension. In 4-H, we are committed to providing positive dynamic learning experiences for as many young people as possible.
