The program is available to youth in every community across the U.S There are three primary learning areas: science, healthy living, and citizenship. Lessons are planned and taught by 4-H staff and volunteers. Through participation in the program, youth learn project-related knowledge and develop skills for success in life.

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.

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.

In Talbot County, youth experience 4-H by means of community clubs, project clubs, in-school and after school programs, and community activities such as the county fair and public speaking contests.

They choose from a wide range of projects including public speaking, leadership, community service, career education, visual arts, food and nutrition, clothing and textiles, photography, animal and plant sciences, woodworking, and science/technology.
