The Duval County 4-H Foundation, established in 1973, was created to enhance existing 4-H programs and to initiate new and innovative programs in youth development.

Each year Duval County 4-H serves approximately 8500 local youth through school enrichment, traditional clubs, and summer camp programs. Students, clubs, leaders and volunteers utilize 4-H academic study materials and complete hands-on projects in subjects such as: horticulture, animal sciences, technology, public speaking & leadership, citizenship & volunteering, health, nutrition and home economics.

Duval County 4-H Foundation raises funds to support these programs through individual and local business contributions, fund-raisers and grants.


The Mission of the Duval County 4-H Foundation is to enlist the contributions of individuals and business to support the educational goals of the local 4-H program to help youth:

  • Develop personal decision-making, communication and leadership skills.

  • Learn and apply principles of science & technology.

  • Understand the importance of food and fiber and the relationship to the world markets.

  • Learn about issues affecting families and communities and become part of the solution. 

  • Forge partnerships between families, schools and businesses to create a network of caring adults to better serve the needs of rural and urban youth.
