The 4‑H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens of the world. The goals of the 4‑H Youth Development Program are to:
- Provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades K–13 (one year out of high school).
- Encourage responsibility, community awareness and character development in youth.
- Increase knowledge and strengthen skills in adults working with youth through training, resources and support materials. Improve community partnerships and collaborations.
Passaic County 4‑H is a youth development program serving youth throughout Passaic County. We are one of the many programs offered by Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 4‑H is one of the largest youth development organizations in the U.S.; and we offer youth opportunities to explore the areas of science, engineering, technology, healthy lifestyle, and citizenship.
4-H From Home allows our 4-Her’s to remain active during this challenging time. For non-4-Her’s, it’s a great way to learn more about 4-H. Check out our interactive webinars on various topics, or enroll in in a short term NJ 4-H Club!
There are 5 active 4‑H clubs located around Passaic County. Clubs are led by trained volunteers and each club has a different focus area and club members participate in various projects throughout the year.
