New Jersey 4-H

4-H has something for just about everyone, wherever they live...in a city, in a town, or in the country. 4-H is where there's fun in learning and learning in fun! Kids can join a 4-H club, go to camp, or take part in a county fair. There are lots of exciting activities, from animals to outdoor adventure, from cooking and nutrition to science and rocketry. Adults and teens can volunteer to help youth learn and have fun.

Mission

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults.
