4-H in the Classroom

What do 4-H School Programs Look Like?

  • For young people...4-H provides opportunities to participate in fun, exciting programs while developing valuable skills with lifelong benefits.
  • For parents and family members...4-H creates safe, healthy, enriching environments that enhance young people’s social, emotional, physical, and academic success.
  • For volunteers...4-H offers an opportunity to share a special skill with young people.

4-H works with urban, suburban and rural schools to identify their areas of need and interest and then build customized programs to meet those needs.

The innovative "learn-by-doing" curricula 4-H offers cover an impressive array of topics including Financial Education, Environmental and Earth Science, Healthy Nutrition and Lifestyle Education, Personal Development, and Leadership.

These research-based, ready-to-use curricula set 4-H apart and help young people to achieve social, emotional, physical, and academic success. Each curriculum provides youth with valuable skills such as leadership, collaboration, decision-making, civic responsibility, and critical thinking.

4-H works with students in many different schools across Hamilton County, both during the school day and in after school programs.
