The New Jersey 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. The goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program are to:
- Provide informal educational programs to youth in grades K–13 (one year out of high school).
- Strengthen skills for adults working with youth.
- Improve community collaborations and partnerships.
To best serve our population, Salem County 4-H offers a variety of programs including community clubs and summer programs. Additional information can be found on the Salem County 4-H Facebook page.
- RETURN TO IN-PERSON: All Rutgers 4-H programs are gradually returning to in-person programming, with mandatory safety protocols. View them here.
- PARTICIPATE IN VIRTUAL 4-H: Virtual 4-H programs are still open to all youth in grades K-13! See Rutgers 4-H From Home for an updated list of online 4-H opportunities.
