4-H Youth Development Riverside County
Did you know that youth can choose any topic they are interested in learning about and while gaining an education on that subject also learn leadership and life skills, community service, and compassion and caring for others? 4-H is a youth development program for youth between the ages of 5 and 19 where they can do just that!
A 4-H member chooses a project or many projects for which they have a passion; it could be cooking, shooting sports, robotics, rabbits, horses, sewing, citizenship or anything else they can think of. If there is a youth with a passion to learn about something, we can find an adult to help them! The member joins a project where the 4-H adult project leader teaches them with hands on, experiential activities and helps them to apply what they have learned in their life. 4-H also gives youth opportunities to learn public speaking, how to do demonstrations, and how to prepare for job interviews! 4-H members can go to summer camp and leadership conferences and workshops, compete in animal shows and public speaking and other skill based events, earn scholarships and much more.
