4-H is a place where youth are given many opportunities to build confidence, learn responsibility, and develop skills that will last them a lifetime. It’s a place where youth make friends and share interests, ranging from building robots to raising rabbits , from designing gardens to protecting the environment. It’s a place where youth work together to make a positive difference in their community, and adult volunteers make a powerful difference in the lives of young people.  4-H fosters an innovative, “learn by doing”.

Youth on Oahu are involved in the 4-H youth development in various ways – through traditional 4-H clubs, SPIN (Special interest), Garden Center, and through school enrichment programs.  If you are interested in participating your child in a 4-H club or program, volunteering as a club or resource leader, or having a 4-H club or program at your school/organization/agency, please fill out the Oahu County 4-H Interest Form.  Complete the interest form and either scan or take a picture of it and send it to chanakaw@hawaii.edu.
