4-H Youth Development

North Bay Wildfires

There have been devastating wildfires affecting Sonoma, Napa, and Lake counties, spreading over 100,000 acres, destroying at least 1,500 structures, and forcing 20,000 North Bay residents to evacuate. Weather conditions continue to change, the fires are not yet contained, so please know this is not over yet. There are five active fires.

We invite the 4-H community to help by:

  • Donate Food and other Items
    • Redwood Empire Food Bank at 3990 Brickway Blvd., Santa Rosa. 
    • Find specific needs for shelters at http://bit.ly/2fYYgW4
  • Volunteer
    Over the next 72 hours, there is a critical need for shelter workers, health services and disaster mental health providers.
    • Red Cross
    • Redwood Empire Food Bank at 3990 Brickway Blvd., Santa Rosa

What is 4-H?

The Sonoma County 4-H program, established in 1926, helps young people, ages 5-19, reach their fullest potential as competent, confident individuals who contribute to and are connected with their communities.

In 4-H programs, youth serve in leadership roles where they set goals, develop plans, complete projects, and reflect on their experiences.

Using an experiential educational model, 4-H helps youth develop essential skills that they will use throughout their lives, such as identifying and nurturing interests, desiring knowledge, setting goals, self-reflection, adapting to new situations, communicating, and responding to the needs of others.
