The World's Brightest Green  

Oklahoma 4-H helps youth learn the life skills they need to be the leaders of tomorrow, teaching members they can lead today and can make tangible, significant changes in their clubs, their communities, their state and their world.
For more than 100 years, Oklahoma 4‑H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better. 
Oklahoma 4‑H is delivered by OSU Extension — with offices based in all 77 counties, our educators provide experiences where young people learn by doing.

About 4-H

Oklahoma 4-H is dedicated to helping Oklahoma youth, families and communities reach their full potential.
Through our hands-on programming, projects and events, our members are making a tangible difference in their clubs, communities, state and world. Whether you enjoy working with animals, building robots, taking photographs, singing songs or even collecting bugs, Oklahoma 4-H has a place for you! 
Our 4-H clubs are made up of a group of citizens often formed around schools, churches and community centers. 4-H members and their parents typically attend monthly meetings. Attendees can expect to discuss information regarding club business, recreation, educational programs and opportunities for every member to get involved.
