4-H Youth Development

4-H is a unique organization, in that it is the only youth development organization with oversight and sponsorship by the federal government. At the federal level, 4-H is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture, through the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

The federal government partners with the Land-Grant Universities, of which Kansas State University is one. K-State Research and Extension, as part of KSU, administers the 4-H program in cooperation with the local Extension governing units.

Through our educational mission, we help youth to learn by doing and to lead by example. In 4-H, we are committed to providing a positive experience for as many young people as possible. Not just with the belief that 4-H grows great kids, but the belief that by preparing our youth for school, work and life that we are contributing to a vibrant economy for years to come.
