Through school-based, after-school, and community clubs as well as camp settings, 4-H members pledge to build a better community, country, and world. Ready for the Future 4-H participants are youth, ages 5 to 19, taking part in programs provided as the result of actions planned and initiated by Extension personnel in cooperation with volunteers. With a direct connection to research at Virginia's land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, 4-H is the first experience many young people have with higher education. 4-H is characterized as being community-centered, volunteer-led, Extension-staff supervised, research-based, home- and family-oriented, publicly and privately funded, and responsive to change. Join Us Virginia 4-H welcomes you to get a glimpse of what 4-H is all about.
