4-H Program



4-H youth development programs are exciting, learn-by-doing educational programs, designed to help youth develop into responsible, self-directed, productive citizens of their community. The goals of youth development are to improve the well-being of youth and society through the use of research-based educational experience.

4-H in Santa Barbara County:

  • Serves over 750 youth in 4-H clubs throughout the county
  • Involves over 200 adult volunteers in educational programs
  • Provides a residential summer camp program, Camp Wahoo! 
  • Offers collaborative programs, such as 4-H Agua Pura and Revolution of Responsibility Projects.

Our Youth Development Advisor and staff manage the 4-H club and after-school programs, develop new programs to meet emerging needs, and collaborate with other youth-serving organizations, connecting them to the resources of the University of California.
