New Hampshire 4-H offers program pathways as a way to create sequential learning experiences that sparks interest, builds mastery of skill, and grows true leaders. Each county specializes their pathways for the needs of their youth and families, while aligning with the National 4-H Mission Mandates (Healthy Living, Citizenship, and Science).

In an effort to build capacity through their pathway experiences, Cheshire County 4-H offers multiple opportunities and delivery options for youth and their families to engage. Whether you are new to 4-H or have been part of the 4-H world for a while, there is something for everyone! From hour-long educational experiences to multi-day workshops, youth can choose how much they want to be involved.  Below are the highlighted specific Cheshire County 4-H opportunities for the current 2017-2018 program year.  Please contact the Cheshire County 4-H program staff for more information.
