4-H empowers young people | 4-H, Clubs

During the Delta County Fair, 4-H clubs highlight their activities with wall displays.

Join over 102,000 young people in Colorado in celebrating the 4-H program during National 4-H Week slated for Oct. 1-7. 4-H is in all Colorado counties, in all 50 states and in more than 50 countries worldwide. The 4-H program reaches seven million young people throughout the world.

4-H follows the philosophy of learning by doing. Youth develop life skills through projects that range from citizenship to expressive arts, communication to foods and nutrition, livestock to wildlife and forestry, and leadership to science and technology. Young people are the drivers of change. All you have to do is look at your local 4-H program to find youth taking the lead and addressing today's challenges.

4-H is where young people explore, learn and discover in a safe environment. In 4-H, youth find their true passions, gain confidence and give back to their community. This week, celebrate 4-H and the members who are stepping up and taking responsibility for their future and ours.
