Participation is open to all youth ages 5-18 who reside in Baltimore County. The Clover Program is open to ages 5-7 years and the 4-H Program is targeted toward 8-18 year old participants.

The Meaning of 4-HThe meaning of 4-H

4-H has a 100 year tradition of voluntary action through strong public-private partnerships at federal, state and community levels. Local volunteer leaders partner with Baltimore County Extension staff to provide direct leadership and educational support to young people in urban, suburban, and rural communities.

4-H youth develop relationships that inspire people to voluntarily help themselves and others as they interact with caring adults and peers. 4-H Program areas include:

  •     Science, Engineering and Technology
  •     Healthy Living
  •     Leadership and Citizenship
  •     Volunteer Development
