Through 4-H programs, young people combine their concerns with practical skills so that  they can make a difference. Every year, National 4-H Week sees millions of youth, parents, volunteers and alumni come together to showcase the many positive youth development opportunities offered by 4-H. The theme for this year’s National 4-H Week is Opportunity4All.
