Dare County 4-H provides opportunities for young people to have fun, learn life skills, and serve their community. 4-H is committed to building outstanding citizen leaders with marketable skills to succeed in today’s global society. “Learn by Doing” is the theme of Dare County 4-H

4-H is the largest youth organization in the United States. It is identified by its green four-leaf clover with an “H” on each leaf. The 4-H’s on the emblem stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. Programs are guided by Cooperative Extension educators and adult and teen volunteers.

  • Develop skills to make good career, health and life choices
  • Serve the community by learning to give back to others
  • Mature in self-discipline and responsibility
  • Become independent thinkers
  • Build lifelong friendships

There are no membership fees to join Dare County 4-H. Program expenses vary and are determined by the program.
