Why 4-H? Research has proven that participation in 4-H has a significant positive impact on young people.

Recent findings from the Tufts University 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development indicate that, when compared to their peers, young people in 4-H are:

• Nearly four times more likely to contribute to their communities,

• Two times more likely to pursue healthy behaviors

• Two times more likely to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs in the out-of-school time.

4-H reaches youth annually through STEM, healthy living, and workforce preparation programs. Youth participate through community clubs, after-school clubs, seminars, lectures, camps, school enrichment, etc.
