Virginia 4-H is the youth development education program of Virginia Cooperative Extension, The four H's are: head, heart, hands and health. 4-H is rich with learning experiences that partner young people with caring adults and volunteers in a fellowship unlike any other program available to youth today. Through 4-H, young people are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that emphasize 4-H's learning by doing philosophy of youth development. We share evidence-based knowledge, information and tools from our land grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, to improve the lives of families and youth in our community. Through 4-H youth learn leadership, citizenship and a vast array of life skills that benefit them for the rest of their lives.
