4-H Youth Development

Cherry Children DS“The Youth is the hope of our future.”
Jose Rizal

The Milwaukee County Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program area offers learning opportunities for youth to gain skills, increase their knowledge, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

“Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
Benjamin Franklin

Using a hands-on model, youth explore life skills while participating in practical learning experiences. Youth development activities include 4-H clubs, STEM investigations, civic engagement, environmental studies, entrepreneurship, the arts, multicultural awareness,and pre-college programs.

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future”.
Franklin Roosevelt

Our goal is to teach, train and share our research-based curriculum with teachers and volunteers and to form community partnerships with schools, youth-serving agencies, churches, and community groups. The focus is to build strong character and future leaders throughout the Greater Milwaukee Community.
