About 4-H

4-H is a youth development program delivered by the University of Wisconsin-Extension and more than 100 public universities across the nation to provide experiences where young people learn by doing. Youth learn through hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture, and citizenship, in a safe and inclusive environment. Education happens through 4-H projects, group programs, events, and in-depth learning experiences. Jackson County 4-H members work together to learn critical thinking and decision making, empathy, life skills, and healthy lifestyles.  4-H youth and adult volunteers work to improve their individual lives and communities in which they live.
