4-H Project Areas & Curriculum

While 4-H aligns its project areas with its Mission Mandates of Science, Healthly Living, and Citizenship, the opportunities expand far and wide! All 4-H project areas are supported by research-based curriculum that is grounded in experiential, hands-on learning. From the Community club setting to the school enrichment classroom to the SPIN workshops to the individual member experience, there is something for everyone. 

Educators- Are you looking for a way to enhance your classroom lessons? Much of our curriculum has been aligned with the Standard Course of Study based on National standards.

Many of our county 4-H offices have copies of curriculum that can be borrowed from the local Extension office or you can purchase your own copy from the National 4-H Mall.
