4-H Youth Development Program provides citizenship, leadership and life skill training. While 4-H program serves ages 9 to 19 year-old, some clubs offer a Clover Program for those age 5 to 8 years. Their philosophy is that children learn by being active participants in society. 4-H program stresses hands-on learning experiences in many areas including animal science, plant science, mechanical science, leisure education, resource education and social science. Most programs/clubs' work is done in the local community and in San Joaquin County. There are clubs throughout San Joaquin County, including in Acampo, Clements, Escalon, Farmington, French Camp, Linden, Lockeford, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Stockton and Tracy. Please call for more information.
