The 4-H Youth Development program creates opportunities and supportive environments for youth and adults to become capable, competent, and caring citizens.  The emphasis is on "hands-on" learning that focuses on the youth's area of interest.  Programs are conducted with the help of parents, adult volunteer leaders and professional staff who organize educational experiences.  Youth participate in organized 4-H clubs, special interest and project groups, 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camp and other special activities.

All meetings will be held at the Estill County Extension Office.  If held anywhere else, it will be listed.
