4-H Youth Development
4-H is a community of young people across Kansas engaged in learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Caring adults that support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential based on the guidance, respect, skills, knowledge and wisdom adults can share.
4-H is a nationwide program. Each of the four H's of the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop.
Head, critical thinking, problem solving;
Heart, self-discipline, integrity, communication;
Hands, serving others; and
Health, choosing healthy lifestyles.
In 4-H, youth have fun with a purpose!

Youth for the Quality Care of Animals Certification
There will be an instructor-led training session on December 21, 2018 at 9:00 am CST at the Thomas Co. 4-H Building for youth to become quality assurance certified. YQCA certification is becoming increasingly popular among livestock shows in the surrounding area, and we highly recommend all youth showing livestock to become certified.
