4-H & Youth Development

 4-H Clover Our Mission

Oklahoma 4-H is dedicated to helping McClain youth, families, and communities reach their full potential. By providing hands-on programming and events in a large variety of projects, 4-H is not only helping youth learn the life skills they need to be the leaders of tomorrow, but it is also teaching its members they can lead today and can make tangible, significant changes in their clubs, their communities, their state and their world.

Whether you enjoy working with animals, building robots, taking photographs, singing or even collecting bugs, Oklahoma 4-H has a place for you and – if you put forth the effort – will give you a firm foundation to succeed in life, no matter what career path you choose!

4-H Clover Our Vision 

Through Oklahoma 4-H, youth will feel valued and empowered as a resource in their communities, practice effective decision-making skills, feel personal pride that comes from achievement and be environmental stewards.

4-H Clover Our Focus

Oklahoma 4-H focuses on three mission mandates: citizenship, healthy living and science and technology. Citizenship programs empower youth to be actively engaged in their communities. Youth learn the importance of physical, mental and emotional health through healthy living programs. Science and technology programs provide hands-on activities for youth to expand their knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

4-H Clover Involvement

Youth ages 8 to 19 can be 4-H members. For youth ages 5 to 7, most counties offer a noncompetitive program called Cloverbuds. Adult volunteers and Extension educators who work for the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service supervise all 4-H activities. Parents are encouraged to take an active role by serving as project leaders or volunteers.

4-H Clover Opportunities

In McClain County 4-H, youth can grow in exciting projects such as public speaking, horticulture, animal science, shooting sports, photography, robotics, child care and more. Youth also have the opportunity to participate in competitions, hold leadership positions within their local, district and state program, attend state and national trips and earn college scholarships.

4-H Clover How to Join

4-H programs are available in every county in Oklahoma. Your county Cooperative Extension Service office is your resource for getting involved in 4-H. There is a $20 per year program fee to join Oklahoma 4-H. This fee helps to maintain a high-quality program for youth and volunteers. No one will be denied participation in 4-H due to the inability to pay.
