4-H Youth

CCE of Suffolk County is dedicated to providing youth a better understanding and appreciation of their environment and their health while offering a foundation of community service plus education in science, technology, engineering and math.

Fun filled, research-based programs conducted at our many CCE sites with a focus on agriculture, marine issues, and the environment throughout the county emphasize "learn by doing". Our youth programming is also offered in schools, afterschool programs, both day and residential camps and through 4-H Clubs.

CCE's 4-H youth development programs help get Suffolk youth "unplugged" and out into their communities.

4-H Club Program

Becoming a member in 4-H can take you places you have never been before! If you are between 5 and 19 years of age you can become a 4-H member. As a member, you can:

  • Become an officer in your club, such as President, Secretary or Treasurer
  • Show projects and animals at the Suffolk County County Fair or State Fair
  • Give public presentations at County and District Levels
  • Participate in state-wide events and trips
  • Younger children can still join 4-H as Cloverbuds
