Butte County 4-H Youth Development Program
Welcome to the 4-H Youth Development Program of Butte County!
Whether raising livestock, participating in leadership development projects, or working on a sewing project, the goals of 4-H remain the same…to help young people develop their full potential!
Butte County 4-H is a nonprofit organization which provides a wide variety of non-formal educational activities for youth ages 5 to 19. Each area of Butte County has a 4-H Club which offers projects and activities for youth which grow leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Butte County 4-H provides positive youth development through 15 4-H Clubs to over 500 youth with support from over 200 adult volunteers.

WHY JOIN 4-H?
For the leadership and citizenship skills, for the life skills education (like public speaking, financial responsibility, time management, and more!), the new friends, and the awesome experiences all for your youth.
HOW WILL 4-H ACCOMPLISH THESE AMAZING THINGS?
Youth will join a 4-H Club where they will have the opportunity to be a club officer, a junior or teen project leader, and join committees. Youth will also participate in projects of their choice, activities, and events. Youth will form positive youth-adult partnerships with 4-H volunteers who will lead and mentor them in their project activities. Youth can also participate in Regional, State, and National citizenship and leadership conferences.
WHERE DOES 4-H HAPPEN?
Butte County 4-H happens right here in our community. Start by selecting a community 4-H Club near you. Youth can also go above and beyond the local level by attending events in other counties, or at the State or National level. We also have a pretty awesome 4-H summer camp.
