4-H Youth Development

La Plata County 4-H

4-H is a nation-wide hands-on youth development program, the largest in the United States with over 6.5 million members. Our purpose is to provide a supportive setting for all girls and boys to mature into competent, caring, and responsible people through volunteerism and the learning of valuable life skills. 4-H also provides many opportunities for young people to take on leadership roles. At its most basic level, 4-H is about belonging to one or more    4-H clubs and pursuing the project list and interests that you love, all while serving the community.

4-H’ers join clubs and pursue projects and interests of their own choosing in areas like:

  • Art and music
  • Science and technology
  • Animals and agriculture
  • Communications
  • Healthy living
  • Citizenship
  • Community action and volunteering

4-H’ers also participate in the 4-H program in ways beyond their clubs. We have:
