4-H is a national-wide organization with chapters throughout the nation for all youth.  Iowa 4-H builds on a century of experiences that fosters positive youth development and empowers youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults.  In Black Hawk County, youth ages kindergarten through 3rd grade participate in Clover Kids.  Programming is delivered as 4-H afterschool, Clover Kids Groups, or day/week summer camps.  Youth in grades 4 through 12 participate in 4-H afterschool or 4-H clubs.

Iowa 4-H follows the principles of experiential learning, and draws on the knowledge base of Iowa State University and other institutions of higher education in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture. The Iowa 4-H Program’s vision and mission statements clearly view youth as partners working with staff and volunteers, and as full participants in planning and working for individual and community change.
