4-H in Jackson County

Youth across Minnesota—from families who have been a part of Extension 4-H for generations to first-generation 4-H'ers–are engaging in 4-H in new and vibrant ways. Today, 4-H programs are as diverse as the interests of the youth they serve.  If you are a youth living in Minnesota, 4-H has something for you!
