4-H is boys and girls getting together to learn new things, meet new friends, and have fun.
4-H clubs are for all boys and girls, grades Kindergarten-13 (1 year out of high school), wherever they live.
Youth in grades Kindergarten-3 can be 4-H cloverbud members.
Youth in grades 4-13 can be standard 4-H club members and enroll in many different 4-H projects.
4-H is an informal, practical educational program for youth. It is the youth development program of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, the off-campus division of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station of Rutgers University. 4-H is where there's fun in learning and learning is fun.
