Aroostook County 4-H

Aroostook 4-H is the Aroostook County youth development program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. 4-H programs strive to help youth acquire the knowledge, life skills, leadership abilities and attitudes that help them succeed now and in the future. We do this through collaboration, through hands-on, "learning by doing" and by self-directed learning supported by caring adult volunteers. Our educational programs focus on science, engineering and technology; healthy lifestyles, citizenship, and sustainable living.
