Welcome to Catawba County 4-H

4-H is the youth program of Cooperative Extension for children ages 5-18. 4-H clubs offer long-term involvement and focus on a variety of different topics. Clubs are led by volunteer leaders and meet at different times and locations around the county. There are also school classroom programs, after-school programs, and summer enrichment programs offered through 4-H. 4-H offers quality educational programs and activities at low or no cost, because we are a service provided by local and state government. Many 4-H programs focus on STEM, Healthy Living, and Leadership.

Program vision: Offer a multi-faceted 4-H program that supports the involvement of youth in long-term meaningful 4-H clubs and programs, enabling them to grow into future leaders.

Program mission: Build and support youth programs based on the 8 essential elements of youth development (based on research)

  • Positive relationship with a caring adult (supporting volunteer club leaders)
  • Inclusive Environment (reaching out to all families)
  • Safe emotional and physical environment (safety/liability)
  • Opportunity for mastery (helping kids feel like they do something well)
  • Engagement in learning (hands-on learning)
  • Opportunity to see oneself as an active participant in the future (goal setting)
  • Opportunity for self-determination (lot of different options and topics to explore)
  • Opportunity to value and practice service to others (community service/leadership)

Catawba County 4-H is learning, doing, and getting involved in projects and activities. You might learn about robotics, photography, plants, cooking or even horses. 4-H may take you to a summer camp, a fair, or maybe even the Nation’s capital–Washington, DC!
