Texas 4-H is the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service youth development program that focuses on the needs, concerns and interests of youth. The aim of Texas 4-H is to help youth gain a positive self-concept, rational social behavior, knowledge and problem-solving capabilities through planned individual projects, meetings, group activities and participation in different events. Members develop new skills, learn cooperation, develop leadership abilities, improve their citizenship and have fun.
The Ranch as an educational venue offers enrichment opportunities for the County Extension programs, especially the youth programs. The Texas 4-H programs and projects of particular relevance to the Ranch include entomology, gardening and horticulture, photography, and wildlife and outdoor education.
