4-H teaches youth that there is more to winning than a blue ribbon. They also learn the hard work they put into their animal project leads them to succeed, and that they can confidently tackle any obstacle after being a 4-H member.

4-H is the only program in Brevard that supports life skill development through raising animals. Each year our program continues to grow, illustrating we have found a niche and youth are interested in livestock and small animal husbandry.
