Barnstable County Celebrates National 4-H Week

Barnstable County 4-H Youth Development


4-H is a place where all youth are welcome and can succeed.

To Barnstable County 4-H volunteers past and present, your passion and tireless commitment is a gift to the youth of Barnstable County! Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.

Barnstable County’s youth are going great things. With the support of the Cape Cod community, our youth builds life skills by leading hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture and, civic engagement โ€“ helping them to grow confidence, independence, resilience, and compassion. Adult mentors provide a positive environment where kids learn by doing, and develop positive peer relationships while developing their confidence and belief in themselves.

If you are not currently a member of the Barnstable County 4-H family please join us by contacting Sandi Shepherd-Gay via email at or phone 508-375-6696.

Volunteers are needed to provide opportunity to all our youth! The new 4-H year starts October 15th, we hope to see you soon.
