4-H is the Youth Outreach component of Cornell Cooperative Extension that connects youth, ages 5-18 years of age, to hands-on learning opportunities that help them grow into competent, caring, contributing members of society. 4-H also looks to create healthy youth-adult partnerships with our network of caring and competent local volunteers. Saratoga County offers a diverse range of programming including veterinary science, robotics, shooting sports, public presentations, master gardener, market auction, wildlife & natural resources, nutrition, and more. 

Saratoga County 4-H Educators have put their best foot forward to work through the COVID-19 pandemic. Saratoga County 4-H is looking forward to offering more in-person programs throughout the new 4-H year. Their new 4-H Educator, Rylie Lear, is creating new opportunities in the animal science area for the youth.
