The History

4-H started off in the 1900's as a method to enlighten parents on ways to improve farm and home practices.  In 1902, a few teachers showed students crop demonstrations, and they shared it with their parents.  These group projects were known as 3-H clubs, and covered topics related to farming.

In 1911, the name 4-H was adopted.  Later, the agricultural clubs were organized.  Club leaders and officers were introduced, as well as regular meetings to be held.  These clubs worked on a series of projects and were organized by schools and local teachers.

Today, the main objective of 4-H has drastically changed to provide each and every person with a variety of learning opportunities in which all youths can participate.
