Preparing Youth for Success

4-H is a non-formal educational, youth development program offered to individuals age 5 and in kindergarten to age 19. Ohio 4-H youth development reaches more than 240,000 youth each year – helping kids “learn by doing” through hands-on activities.

All 4-H programs focus on active involvement and quality experiences which stimulate lifelong learning of values and skills. 4-H members learn valuable lessons in leadership, communication and collaboration while increasing their knowledge in math, science, technology and a variety of other topics.

4-H creates fun while learning in a variety of ways. Kids can participate in 4-H through community clubs, camps, in-school and after-school activities, and summer programs. They increase their self-confidence and personal life skills while learning about specific subjects - anything from animals or computers to public speaking, cooking, art, gardening and environmental sciences, just to name a few project topics.

Welcome to Wyandot County 4-H! It's amazing what 4-H has to offer – more than 200 projects that include scrapbooking, woodworking, cooking, livestock, small animals, dogs, sewing, engines, and so much more! We have more than 500 4-H members who are led by more than 100 volunteers. Our clubs are spread out over the county so if you would like more information, please call the Wyandot County Extension office at 419-294-4931.
