Tennessee 4-H develops youth to thrive and to “make the best better.” Youth participate in 4-H through clubs, special interest groups, after-school programs, camps, and many other methods. 4-H youth “learn by doing” through hands-on activities, starting in their own communities, and reaching far beyond; while empowering them to develop and strengthen valuable life skills.
4-H is a family affair. This includes the parent-child relationship and the extended family of volunteers and supporters. It is a unique blend of the University, businesses, and government working together to broaden the horizons of Tennessee’s young people. 4-H is fun for both youth and adults. 4-H is for YOUth!
