How to Participate
In the state of Hawaii, programming focuses on the three national mission mandates of Healthy Living, Science and Citizenship.
4-H Clubs incorporate a variety of projects that fall under those topics such as Cooking Skills (Healthy Living), Robotics (Science), and the 4-H History Project (Citizenship.)
Special Interest programs (SPIN) are shorter in length than traditional year-long clubs and focus on a specific topic area.
Club membership is not required for participation in some 4-H programs that are offered throughout the state.
Hawaii State 4-H Programming
The Hawai‘i 4-H youth program continues to move forward!
We’ve made efforts to solidify club and project standards and guidelines, and thanks to the 4-H members, volunteers, and families, the program has made strides in implementing our online 4-H enrollment system.
Through the increased use of technology (website, webinars and online meetings), Hawai‘i Extension educators are able to share resources not only throughout their county but across the state as well. By developing partnerships with other youth-servicing organizations, we look forward to being able to serve more Hawai‘i youth with hands-on learning experiences.
