Wildcat 4-H is a youth organization for 5 to 19-year-olds that offers hands-on learning in various projects.  Youth members also have the opportunity to develop leadership, public speaking, civic engagement, healthy living, and life skills while making new friends.

We are located in El Cerrito, CA, and serve youth members in West Contra Costa County.  Our program year is July to June.

What is 4-H

In 4‑H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America’s largest youth development organization—empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. with the skills to lead for a lifetime.

4-H is a community

4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids experience 4‑H in every county and parish in the country—through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4‑H camps.

4-H Grows Here in El Cerrito, Berkeley, Albany, Richmond and other West Contra Costa cities.
