4-H was formed in the early part of the twentieth century to extend knowledge and information from the state land-grant universities to local communities. An organization rooted in the rich tradition of American agriculture, 4-H today serves youth from urban centers as well as those living in suburbs and the rural heartland. 4-H is a program of the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) with collaboration between federal, state, and county governments, and community residents. Each county maintains a Cooperative Extension office with academic advisors who conduct research and extend knowledge in their areas of expertise. National 4-H History
