4-H Helps Build Vital Life Skills:
4-H is the nation's largest youth development organization, involving young people in urban neighborhoods, suburban schoolyards and rural farming communities. 4-H fosters an innovative, "learn by doing" approach with proven results. Young people in the 4-H program are more likely to earn better grades and go to college, more likely to be a strong part of their families and communities, and less likely to engage in risky behaviors. The activities and ideals promoted through 4-H help build upstanding citizens to become our community leaders of tomorrow. 4-H is not simply showing cattle, as some people believe. It is forming our youth into thinkers and innovators - and at the same time promoting ethics and character. Teaching life skills is paramount to the philosophy behind the 4-H programs. We also provide programming outside of 4-H activities.
The Grant County 4-H program serves the communities and citizens of Grant County. We are proud to be part of the county and its communities, and we provide education and information on a variety of subjects.
