4H is Family, Friends, Dedication and Empowerment
4H is Family, Friends, Dedication and Empowerment

The 4-H program has two distinct areas. First the volunteer lead club program that has changed little in Pacific County over one-hundred years. The two biggest changes are girls and boys are now meeting together in the same clubs and a variety of projects are available. The second area is enrichment which is relatively recent. Both areas practice the fundamental 4-H ideal of learn-by-doing, experiential education that encourages youth to experiment, innovate and think. Unlike other youth organizations, 4-H offers families the opportunity to participate together.
