About Morris County 4-H
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. This is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of caring adults:
- To provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades 1-13 (one year out of high school)
- To improve community partnerships and collaborations
- To strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training
- To encourage responsibility, community awareness, and character development in youth
