Highlands County 4-H

    4-H is the youth development program of the University of Florida and other land-grant universities throughout the United States.  This international program provides children and young adults ages 5 to 18 the opportunity to learn the life skills they need to be productive members of society, responsible citizens, and future leaders. 
   
4-H employs the experiential learning theory—a tried-and-true learning process which revolves around “learning by doing” to teach these skills.  Youth may choose from a variety of topics, based on their own interest(s), local resources, and adult support. 
   
The program ensures that each youth will encounter a safe and inclusive learning environment, led by caring adults, to explore content based on land grant university research and resources. 
   
Some of the most popular programs here in Highlands County include Shooting Sports, Livestock and Animals, Citrus, Leadership, and Citizenship.
