San Juan County 4-H Program

San Juan County has the second largest 4-H youth enrollment in the state of New Mexico with a membership of over 450 to 500 youth. The county fair provides 4-H members with a chance to show what they have learned with their completed projects, ranging from baking, electricity, and woodworking to training dogs and horses as well as raising and showing other livestock animals such as beef, swine, sheep, goat, rabbits and poultry. These projects teach the youth not only about their individual projects but responsibility for finishing what they have begun.

The 4-H Program in San Juan County challenges youth to gain knowledge in the areas of leadership, citizenship, personal growth and development, animal science, engineering science, plant science, natural science, cultural education, home economics, food and nutrition, consumer education and home management, as well as creative arts.

4-H Youth and Development

Our 4-H program provides a creative and supportive environment in which culturally diverse youth and adults can reach their full potential. Our local county program works to develop life skills to help young people become self-directed, productive citizens. We also work to empower adult volunteers who multiply the efforts of our local County Extension staff.


San Juan County 4-H Enrollment is CLOSED for 2023. Please check back in October 2023 for the new enrollment year.
