4-H Youth Development

Welcome To Kearny County 4-H

4-H is open to all youth ages 7-19. We offer a variety of projects including Foods and Nutrition, Quilting, Photography, Rocketry, Livestock and much more. We, also, have non-competitive Cloverbuds, ages 5 to 6. Cloverbuds have the opportunity to participate in 4-H as they observe their siblings model and practice 4-H events.

4-H is a community of young people across Kansas engaged in learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Caring adults that support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential based on the guidance, respect, skills, knowledge and wisdom adults can share. 4-H is a nationwide program.
