Lancaster County 4-H is an non-profit informal education program for all youth ages 8-19 regardless of race, sex, national origin, creed or disability. Designed to teach youth life skills, 4-H is built on the subject matter projects developed by Penn State Cooperative Extension and by National 4-H Council. This information is used by interested adults who serve as volunteer leaders. 4-H is a joint effort of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Penn State University and the Lancaster County Commissioners. The collaboration and funding of these organizations provides materials, tools and staff needed to support our volunteers and family participants.
