About the 4-H Program

 4-H is the youth development program of Washington State University Extension, and is managed jointly by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Washington’s land grant university (WSU) and King County government. 4-H is everywhere - in cities, suburbs, small towns, and rural communities. 4-H is the largest youth development organization in the nation. The United States has more than five million members and 600,000 leaders. Around the world, 4-H-type clubs exist in at least 82 countries. 4-H serves a broad clientele, with expanded program focus using a variety of delivery methods that incorporate its theme of learn by doing.

Vision

Washington State University 4-H Youth Development is assisting young people to become productive citizens who are engaged in positive change in order to meet the needs of a diverse and changing society.

  • Foster leadership and volunteerism in youth and adults
  • Build internal and external partnerships for programming and funding
  • Strengthen families and communities
