4-H Motto: "To make the best better"

4-H is the largest youth development organization in Michigan, with nearly 200,000 youth between the ages of 5 and 19 participating. Because Michigan 4-H is part of MSU Extension, the activities your kids participate in are all backed by and based on child development research. We use experiential (i.e. hands-on, feet-wet) learning and time spent intentionally thinking about what’s been learned to make it a meaningful experience, with skills and ideas learned that last a lifetime.

It’s a fact: kids who participate in 4-H get better grades, are more likely to go to college, are less likely to use drugs, cigarettes or alcohol, and are more likely to give back to their communities.

To become a 4-H member or volunteer please contact your local MSU Extension office or contact the Alpena MSU Extension office at (989) 354-9870 and we can direct you to your local 4-H Program Coordinator.
