Leadership & Citizenship

4-H'ers at the CapitalYou’ve heard the expression “think globally, act locally.” Michigan 4-H couldn’t agree more. Discover the many ways to get involved in your community and act locally through our educational activities, fun conferences and events that help develop leadership and citizenship skills. Young people (5 to 19 years old) are invited to join 4-H and gain the knowledge, skills and practical application needed to be participatory members of our democracy, learn job skills and have fun. Programs and 4-H clubs are done through a cadre of trained volunteers and staff who work with young people on dynamic and meaningful educational programs.
