Open to all youth ages 5–18, the Nebraska Extension 4-H youth development program emphasizes: 4-H science, citizenship and leadership, agricultural literacy, career development, college readiness and healthy lifestyles. Lancaster County 4-H is a partnership between the Lancaster County government and Nebraska Extension.
The flagship of 4-H is the traditional club program where youth receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on leadership roles. Clubs have regular meetings and most clubs learn at least one project together. Independent members learn at their own pace.
