4-H Youth Development

Welcome to Humboldt County 4-H Youth Development

4-H club programming in Humboldt County covers several project areas that teach leadership, life skills and citizenship. Typical 4-H age for club members range from 9 to 19 years of age; however, many of the clubs accept Cloverbuds, youth ages 5 to 8. Some restrictions apply to Cloverbuds around exhibition and competition.

If you or your children are looking for a quality and fun youth development experience, contact Sharon Barton at the Humboldt County office of the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, (775) 623-6304.
