4-H Youth Development
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.
Youth, ages 5 - 19, can be a member of 4-H by joining a club, being a part of an inschool or afterschool program where 4-H is incorporated, or by working on an individual project.
Adult volunteers are a significant part of a 4-H member's experience. Volunteers serve in a variety of capacities that are flexible to fit personal schedules, skills, talents and interests.
Clemson Extension agents with primary Youth Development responsibilities work closely with state extension specialists and researchers located on campus and at the various research and education centers located across the state. They provide expertise in topics including animal agriculture and veterinary science, natural resources and the environment, gardening, leadership and citizenship, personal growth and development, and science, engineering and technology.
