4-H Youth

Welcome to St. Mary's County 4-H!  Participation in 4-H is open to all interested county youth. 4-H members select educational topics from a wide array of possibilities. The directed learn-by-doing experience is supported by faculty of the University of Maryland, project materials, and trained 4-H volunteers who work with 4-H members in their own neighborhoods. 4-H members learn to keep records, develop decision-making skills, speaking and leadership skills and become involved in community service projects. Through 4-H, youth make friends with children and adults in the community.
