Making the Best Better

Wake County 4-H Logo.

4-H is a fun program where you get to “Learn by Doing.” 4-H is the world’s largest youth serving organization with over 6 million participants internationally.

4‑H’s hands-on approach is proven to grow life skills like confidence, independence, resilience and compassion through stages and developed through experiences, not instruction.

Who Can Join?

Everyone is invited to join. There is no fee that is set by the 4-H organization. However, some clubs will ask members to pay meeting dues for their snacks, pay for field trips the club might take as a part of their learning experience, or for the cost of materials used for an activity. Other clubs may choose to hold a fundraiser to pay for their snacks and club activities. 4-H’s inclusive programs, clubs, and camps are open to all youth ages 5 to 19, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, gender, or disabilities.

What Does 4-H Stand For?

The four H’s stand for Head, Heart Hands and Health!

Head- Clearer thinking, problem solving, decision-making, critical
thinking, visionary leadership
Heart Greater loyalty, strong personal valves, positive self-concept,
productive family and peer relationships
Hands Larger service, workforce preparedness, science and technology
literacy, community service.
Health Better living, healthy personal lifestyles, promoting environmental
stewardship, creating vibrant communities

What Does 4-H Offer?

If you can think it, 4-H can do it! From workforce development and community clubs to horse bowl and embryology- 4-H offers programs for every interest and every age group! Wake County 4-H is unique in its programming because of its rich relationship with community partners, NC State and Wake County Human Services.
