4-H Youth Development
The mission of the 4-H Youth Development program is to create supportive environments for culturally diverse youth and adults to reach their fullest potential as capable, competent and caring citizens.

4-H gives youth a chance to:
♦ Learn new things
♦ Develop new skills
♦ Travel to new places
♦ Experience new situations
♦ Make new friends
♦ And most importantly....Have lots of fun!!!
What Makes 4-H Different?
4-H is unique because it is the only youth organization tied to the research base of our nation's land-grant university system. This connection allows the University of Minnesota Extension staff and the volunteers they work with to receive training based on the most up-to-date research on youth development theory and practice.
How Often and Where Do 4-H Clubs Meet?
♦ Most clubs meet once a month
♦ Two clubs currently meet in Cosmos, the Cosmos Comets and the Danielson Hustlers
♦ You can join any time of the year
