Welcome to the McCracken County 4-H Youth Development Program

Welcome to the McCracken County 4-H!

The 4-H/Youth Development program here at your McCracken County Extension Office, courtesy of the University of Kentucky, creates opportunities and supportive environments for youth and adults to become capable, competent and caring citizens. And while that might just sound boring, it is actually fun and entertaining. Don’t believe us? Check out our website or contact one of our agents if you have any questions.
