Welcome to the Onondaga County 4-H Program!
4-H welcomes young people from all beliefs and backgrounds, empowering them to create positive change in their communities.
4-H youth learn leadership, civic engagement and life skills. Nationally, more than 5 million kids and teens belong to this youth development organization.
Onondaga County offers local and county-wide 4-H clubs and programs, connections to 4-H camps, and statewide 4-H activities.
4-H is open to all youth aged 5-to-18, who want to have fun, learn new skills, and explore the world. 4-H members have a supportive environment and opportunities for hands-on or "experiential" learning about topics that interest them.
They come away with skills all young people need to succeed in life:confidence, compassion and connections with caring adults to help them contribute to their communities.
Youth ages 11-18 are now invited to enroll in sessions of the “Youth Leadership to Strengthen Our Communities” program. Available in the fall, winter, summer, and spring!
Looking to start a 4-H club of your own? This page will give you all the information you need to get started!
Projects allow youth to learn a new skill, explore interests, and can focus on nearly any topic. Click here to learn more!
