The West Hawaii 4-H Youth Development Program is part of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Extension Service, serving youth ages 5-19. 4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.
4-H provides “Learn by Doing” experiences and supports youth in their development of essential life skills. Youth explore their interests through fun, engaging hands-on learning led by dedicated mentors/leaders.
Program topics include:
Civic Engagement – Community involvement is a critical element of the 4-H program, and many West Hawaii clubs participate in service projects in their communities or develop their own innovative service activities.
Healthy Living – Health is a cornerstone of 4-H, and clubs often engage in cooking, gardening, and other projects that develop healthy habits for members and their families.
… and much more!
4-H activities and curriculum can explore almost any topic you can imagine, such as food & nutrition, sewing, photography, engineering & technology, environmental science, and animals. Contact us to learn more about 4-H in West Hawaii!
