4H youth in a circle

4-H is open year-round to youths ages 5-18 without regard to race, creed, gender, marital status, handicaps or disadvantages, economic or ethnic backgrounds.

The Study of 4-H Positive Youth Development shows 4-H youths outperform their peers in:

    • earning higher grades
    • attending college
    • contributing to their communities

Research specific to Idaho youth shows that 4-H members are:

  • far less likely to engage in risky negative behaviors
  • more likely to do service projects to help others
  • more likely to seek school and community leadership roles

Contact the UI Extension, Bonneville County office at (208) 529-1390 or email brandyk@uidaho.edu to learn about 4-H programs, how to enroll your child, or how to volunteer as a teen or adult mentor.
