SDSU Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program helps young people to reach their full potential as competent, confident leaders of character who contribute and are connected to their communities.

In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own projects and related activities. This unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that youth will use throughout their lives. Whether a young person builds a rocket, raises a companion pet, or plants vegetables, 4-H gives youth the skills they need to thrive and succeed.
