4-H Youth Development

Are you looking for research-based at home learning resources? 4-H has many resources in connection with their state’s Land Grant University. Different States have different lessons, so check it out! 

Welcome to Delaware 4-H


4-H is the place where learning is fun, whether it takes place in your school, at camp, in your community or at the University of Delaware. There are plenty of exciting adventures that you can have in your community, state, country and all over the world. 

If you think that 4-H is just for rural kids, you will be surprised to find out that you are wrong. Delaware 4-H has something for each of the over 36,000 young people who participate in 4-H each year.
