Ocean County 4-H uses a learn-by-doing approach that enables youth to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens of the world.
The goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program are to:
Through regular meetings and activities, 4-H clubs provide youth with a consistent and welcoming environment in which to learn, grow, and make lifelong friends.
The Ocean County 4-H Office provides unique educational programming afterschool and during school breaks. Topics include: cooking, nutrition, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), team building, and healthy living.
Invite the Ocean County 4-H staff to your classroom! We can provide enrichment programming on a wide variety of topics, including: character education, life skills development, environmental science, and healthy living.
Half-day, full-day, and multiple-session special interest trainings are held on a regular basis by 4-H staff. These trainings are ideal for educators, community youth workers, and after-school staff.
