Ohio's young people need advanced skills in innovation and application of new technologies, as well as basic skills in communications, math, science, and research. OSU Extension's 4-H Youth Development program is part of a community of young people across America who learn about leadership, citizenship, and life skills. In 4-H, young people aged 5 to 19 experience hands-on learning through clubs, camps, in-school, after-school and summer programs in urban, suburban, and rural communities statewide. All 4-H and other youth programs focus on learning by doing - emphasizing active involvement and quality experiences which stimulate lifelong learning of values and skills.
