How to Join 4-H
What is 4-H and Who is In Charge?
4-H is a non-formal educational program and an organization for youth. It is open to everyone regardless of race, religion, color, gender, national origin, handicap or place of residence.
Who is in charge of 4-H?
Nationally, this is managed by the Families, 4-H and Nutrition unit of the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. At the State level, 4-H is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service of the Land-Grant Universities in each State and Territory. The people in charge locally are the Extension Agents/Educators in each county. County staff are members of the faculty of the University. Funding for 4-H is provided through a partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the State University and County Commissioners.
