Program Overview

Volunteer Information

The Agricultural Science Program engages 4-H members in a variety of hands-on activities and experiences that cultivate an increased understanding and appreciation for agriculture. 

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This program fosters mastery by learning about agricultural sciences including where food comes from, consumer choices, and sustainable agricultural practices, belonging by interacting and connecting with adults and youth, independence by practicing leadership skills and independent thinking, and generosity by participating in community service and citizenship activities.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
