Lee County 4-H
We are the 4-H Positive Youth Development Program for Lee County, housed through the University of Florida IFAS Extension and the Lee County Parks and Recreation Division of the Lee County Government. With the support of our local government and state land grant university, along with volunteers, we are able to reach youth ages 5-18 across all of Lee County. Through our outreach programs and 4-H Clubs combine, we are able to help teach youth life skills and help prepare them for the workforce in program areas such as S.T.E.A.M., Citizenship and Leadership, and Healthy Living.
