4-H Youth Development

4-H is a nationwide program led by state land-grant universities in cooper-ation with local county/district extension councils. In Kansas, 4-H is the largest youth educational program, aside from public schools. Each of the four H's on the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop in 4-H.

Cowley County 4-H is home to eleven community clubs and one project club.  Community clubs meet on a monthly basis to conduct the business and activities of the members.  Visit a club today to learn more!
