 "To Make the Best Better"

Welcome to the Monterey County 4-H Program, we have approximately 800 youth enrolled in local 4-H programs and nearly 300 adult volunteers engaging  youth in varied learning experiences. There are fourteen clubs in the county, covering almost all geographic areas. Our mission is to engage youth in reaching their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development.
