4-H is the youth development program of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. 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.

4‑H empowers young people 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 mentors, youth develop their own pathway in 4‑H. They select from a broad menu of local 4‑H programs. There are hands-on, learn-by-doing, opportunities for everyone.

4-H is SO much more!

Raise Your Hand & Pay it Forward

In 4-H, we believe in the power of America’s youth to succeed in life; however, only one in three kids says they have the skills they need to handle what life throws their way.

That’s why Texas 4-H is participating in “Raise Your Hand.” A nationwide call to action for alumni to “raise their hands” to empower our nation’s youth with the skills to lead for a lifetime. This is your chance to help Texas grow the next generation of True Leaders – because every child deserves the opportunity to succeed and by doing so, you can help Texas 4-H win $20,000.

Between March 1 and June 30, 2017, we are asking every county to solicit alumni to reconnect with 4-H by signing up online and pledging their commitment to the mission of 4-H in Texas and across the country. The state with the most 4-H alumni signed up at the end of the campaign wins a $20,000 prize that we are going to share with you! for more information CLICK HERE.

Getting involved with 4‑H is easy and costs are kept to a minimum. Unlike other youth organizations, 4‑H doesn’t require a uniform and there are no national fees. Children select their 4‑H education project so they can choose one that works well within a family’s budget. 4‑H programs and clubs typically meet once per month, although some may choose to meet more or less frequently.
