The largest youth organization in the world, 4-H, is more than 100 years old.


The goal of the 4-H program is to increase a member’s knowledge in a variety of project areas based on their interest and ability, while teaching life-skills such as decision-making, public speaking and leadership. The program aims to empower youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults.


The non-formal educational youth development program is part of the Cooperative Extension System. It is the only youth organization based at land grant universities and here in Pennsylvania, Penn State University is one such university.


The 4-H program is open to all youth, ages 5-18 . New leaders and members are always welcome. To become a 4-H leader or member, contact Penn State Extension Lackawanna County, by phoning 570. 963.6842, emailing LackawannaExt@psu.edu, or visiting 200 Adams Ave., Lower Level, Scranton.
