4-H in Broomfield
Thank you for your interest in 4-H in Broomfield. The Broomfield 4-H club still meets locally, but has been transferred to Boulder County to provide a more complete 4-H experience, including the opportunity to participate in a county fair.

4-H began over a century ago as an educational program for the nation’s rural youth. Today, 4-H meets the needs of and engages young people in positive youth development experiences. These experiences are based on the idea that young people should be regarded as resources to be developed. 2010 marked the state centennial of 4-H in Colorado and a renewed commitment to helping shape youth and communities. In looking to the next century, 4-H further develops its programs and continues its motto of “Making the Best Better.”
