4-H and Youth Development

4h the power of youth4-H is known as a family organization because it takes the whole family to help mold our young people into conscientious citizens.

4-H programs are planned to help develop life skills in citizenship and leadership.

The 4-H goal is to help young people become motivated, productive and contributing members of society as they “learn by doing.” Thousands of dedicated adult volunteers make achievement of these goals possible. The volunteers contribute their time, talents, and resources to maintain and expand the 4-H program.

El Paso County is fortunate to have many dedicated volunteer adult leaders. Because of them, our young people are outstanding and we are proud of their accomplishments. The future of our community, state, and nation is in good hands.

You too can join the ranks of 4-H volunteers and members in El Paso County “To Make The Best Better”.
