4-H Youth Development
The Maryland 4-H Youth Development Program provides a supportive setting for youth to reach their fullest potential. Children learn beneficial cognitive and life skills through community-focused, research-based, experiential educational programs. Participation is open to all youth ages five through 18 who reside in Baltimore County. The Clover Program is open to children age five through seven and the 4-H Program is targeted toward eight- through 18-year-old participants.
4-H has a 100 year tradition of voluntary action through strong public-private partnerships at federal, state and community levels. Local volunteer leaders partner with Baltimore County Extension staff to provide direct leadership and educational support to young people in urban, suburban and rural communities.
4-H youth develop relationships that inspire people to voluntarily help themselves and others as they interact with caring adults and peers. 4-H Program areas include:
- Science, Engineering and Technology
- Healthy Living
- Leadership and Citizenship
- Volunteer Development
After-School Clubs are an opportunity for youth to engage in hands-on activities during after-school hours. Activities include: college prep, community service, financial management, workforce prep, leadership, community service and more!
