4-H Youth and Development

Our 4-H program provides a creative a supportive environment in which culturally diverse youth and adults can reach their full potential. Our local County 4-H program works to develop life skills to help young people become self-directed, productive citizens. We also work to empower adult volunteers who multiply the efforts of our local Sandoval County Extension staff.

Our 4-H youth development program is a dynamic non-formal education program. It provides opportunities for youth to learn life skills and gain knowledge while having fun. The life skills learned in 4-H enable youth to become productive, well-informed, self-reliant, responsible adults.

The Sandoval County 4-H program consists of 11 traditional 4-H Clubs with well over 250 members. These clubs meet once a month as a group and participate in many youth educational activities.
