Maryland 4-H is the University of Maryland's youth development program and is part of the national 4-H system. All states across the U.S. offer 4-H educational programs. All youth of ages 5 through 18 as of January 1 of the current year are welcome to participate in 4-H programs.
Adult volunteers are welcome! Let us know your interests and we'll help you get to work helping young people learn new project information and develop skills for success in life. We can also help you start your own club if none of our current club project offerings matches your family's interests.
4-H offers a variety of project areas for youth to explore. Talbot 4-H supports three National Mission Mandates featuring projects in areas of science, healthy living, and civic engagement. Talbot 4-H faculty, staff, and volunteers plan and lead learning activities related to 4-H projects.
4-H teaches youth through hands-on “learn by doing” activities that encourage children and teens to experiment, innovate, and think independently. Youth use their HEADS to learn and develop life skills, their HEARTS to support and encourage others in their 4-H clubs, their HANDS to carry out a wide variety of community service projects, and their HEALTH to improve the quality of life for themselves and others.
Through participation in the program, youth learn project-related knowledge and develop skills for success in life. The Hendricks Life Skills Wheel shown above contains examples of life skills associated with each H: Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.
National studies have documented that 4-H members often do better in school, are more motivated to help others, have confidence to try new things, develop self-esteem, and create lasting friendships. 4-H can be a fun, educational experience for your entire family.
