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
