The NYS 4-H program links research to real life with the
help of Cornell University faculty and a statewide 4-H system that promotes the
value in learning about government, STEM, and living a healthy lifestyle. 4-H “Lights a Fire” and encourages youth to ask
questions, believe in themselves, and make meaningful contributions to their
communities. Learn more here!

4-H Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
What does Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) have to do with 4-H? More than you might think! Check out this page to learn about this mission mandate, access the NYS SET Toolkits, and find out why 4-H is committed to introducing youth to the wonders and inspiration of these three disciplines.
4-H Civic Engagement
Chances are ... if you're involved in 4-H, in other youth organizations, or school programs, you're already doing some type of community service. If you want to learn how to 'kick it up a notch' there's curriculum and resources to help.
4-H Healthy Living
Families today are busier than ever, with more work, school and afterschool activities and scheduling issues. Couple these things with more sedentary lifestyles and more access to quick, sometimes less healthy meal choices and you can easily see the reasons for today's childhood obesity statistics.
