Description of Services

Preparing Youth for Success

4-H is a non-formal, educational, youth-development program offered to individuals 5 years of age and in kindergarten through 19 years of age. Ohio 4-H youth development reaches more than 240,000 youth each year, helping kids "learn by doing” through hands-on activities.
All 4-H programs focus on active involvement and quality experiences which stimulate lifelong learning of values and skills. 4-H members learn valuable lessons in leadership, communication and collaboration while increasing their knowledge in math, science, technology and a variety of other topics.
4-H creates fun while learning in a variety of ways. Kids can participate in 4-H through community clubs, camps, in-school and after-school activities, and summer programs. They increase their self-confidence and personal life skills while learning about specific subjects - anything from animals or computers to public speaking, cooking, art, gardening and environmental sciences, just to name a few project topics.
Jefferson County has always lived up to its motto, to "Make the Best Better." If you are interested in joining 4-H and becoming a part of our organization, call Angie Allison, Extension Educator, 4-H Youth Development, OSU Extension at (740) 264-2212 for more information.
