4-H/Extension Service

“To Make The Best Better”

SDSU Extension is the indispensable outreach link to people growing South Dakota’s, and the nation’s, future by providing solutions and creating opportunities. We foster learning communities that e​​​​mpower citizens to advocate for sustainable change and strengthen agriculture, natural resources, youth, families and communities.

Youth experience 4-H through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4-H camps and educational programs. Members complete hands-on projects in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles.

South Dakota 4-H Mission Statement
South Dakota 4-H enables youth to be engaged in the following:

  • Partnerships with caring adults
  • Positive learning environments
  • Developing their fullest potential
  • Learning life skills
