Oregon 4-H offers a variety of educational opportunities for youth ages 5-19. The program is part of the OSU Extension Service and is active in all Oregon counties. 4-H is based on a positive youth development (PYD) approach that recognizes all youth have interests, abilities, and strengths that can be enhanced by participation in 4-H programs. Research shows that participation in high quality 4-H programs increases thriving in youth, and thriving youth achieve important developmental outcomes, such as academic motivation and achievement. Opportunities abound for leadership development, community service, and learning about topics as diverse as natural sciences, foods and nutrition, animal science, STEM and more! All 4-H educational activities are designed to help participants develop lifelong skills through project based learning that will prepare them for future success.
