4-H & Youth Development

4-H'ers in Allegany County are leading a Revolution of Responsibility - a movement for positive change in every community in America including right here in Allegany County, Maryland!

4-H youth are a living breathing, culture-changing revolution for doing the right thing, breaking through obstacles and pushing our country forward by making a measurable difference right here in Allegany County. This takes uncommon commitment and that is exactly what our youth have!

Currently, our revolution consists of 11 clubs and 8 outreach groups, reaching 200 youth in community clubs and 2,200 youth in outreach groups throughout Allegany County, MD. That is over 2,000 youth in our county committed to change! This change starts with the heart of 4-H: Community Service. In 2014, over 80 adult 4-H Volunteers did their part in changing our community!

Join our Revolution! For more information on the 4-H Youth Development Program in Allegany County, contact Lacie Ashby or Jessica Mellon at 301-724-3320.
