Wyandotte County

What is 4-H ?

4-H is a community of young people across Kansas engaged in learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Caring adults that support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential based on the guidance, respect, skills, knowledge and wisdom adults can share.

4-H is a nationwide program. Each of the four H's of the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop.

  • H ead, critical thinking, problem solving;
  • H eart, self-discipline, integrity, communication;
  • H ands, serving others; and
  • H ealth, choosing healthy lifestyles.

In 4-H, youth have fun with a purpose!

Come learn about how to be part of our 4-H Family at the WyCo 4-H Summer Showcase!


WyCo 4-H Handbook and Master Calendar - updated as of 2/26/2019

This all inclusive calendar contains all events happening in our 4-H program, including countywide community service events, state event deadlines, community club meetings, project meetings, 4-H project leader, 4-H Club Leader contact information, 4-H project and club Facebook groups and MORE!

This is a pilot year for Wyandotte County to have a 4-H Handbook and Master Calendar, versus a monthly newsletter. This resource can also be found on 4-H Online profiles, and events have been created on our public Wyandotte County 4-H page for countywide events and deadlines. 4-H clubs and projects have individualized groups and pages to network and plan events for membership.  For questions regarding the 4-H Handbook and Master Calendar please reach out to 4-H Staff.
