With more than 6 million members, 4-H is the largest youth development organization in the United States, and is all about helping young people thrive. 

Recruitment for the upcoming 4-H year is now open for youth ages 5 to 19. You can enjoy learning about electricity, engineering, animal science, photography, dogs, horse, and more. The organization also offers a leadership club for youth in grades eight to 12 where they learn to run events, do public speaking, and get involved in helping the community.

4-H is  also looking for volunteer adult leaders to start new clubs. Clatsop County 4-H has over 400 youth members and 150 adult volunteers who work with these youth to teach them project skills and life skills. The projects we are able to offer youth is dependent on our leaders. The program has  many youth signed up in Archery and Cloverbud (5-to-8-year-old) but need new clubs to put them in. Other project area leaders sought include forestry, art, sewing, videography, horticulture, foods, outdoor science, Lego robotics, science and welding. Call the Extension Office at 503-325-8573 to see what is involved in starting a club or to get signed up as a member.

4-H is an OSU program that offers its programs equally to all people ages 5 to 19 Oregon State University Extension Service offers educational programs, activities, and materials without discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, marital status, disability, or disabled veteran or Vietnam-era veteran status.
