What is 4-H?
4-H is an informal practical, learning-by-doing educational program for youth. Professional and volunteer staff provide educational projects and activities in shooting sports, animal science, family and consumer sciences, leisure arts, citizenship and leadership. It is the youth component of the University of Wyoming Extension of Natrona County.
4-H develops skills that will last a lifetime by helping young people acquire self-discipline, a sense of responsibility, confidence, the ability to set goals, communication skills, record keeping skills and a better understanding of themselves and others. These things are taught with a framework of the Character Counts program; TRUSTWORTHY, RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, FAIRNESS, CARING and CITIZENSHIP.
