State 4-H Resources
Welcome to 4-H & Youth Development
4-H is the youth development education program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. 4-H participants range in age from 5 to 19 and traditionally have organized themselves into 4-H clubs to support one another as they take on “learning-by-doing” projects.
Young people may also become involved in 4-H through school enrichment programs, 4-H camps, by creating individual projects on their own, and a variety of other activities.
York County has a rich variety of 4-H and youth programs. There are currently 22 4-H clubs serving York County. We also offer a variety of programs in school and after-school settings. For more information contact:
