Teller County 4-H Youth Development

Welcome to 4-H Youth Development

Mark Platten / 4-H Coordinator - email

Teller County currently hosts six traditional 4-H clubs in Woodland Park, Divide, Lake George, Victor and a new club beginning this year in Cripple Creek. For young people ages 5-7, we offer  “Cloverbuds” programs at Gateway and Summit Elementary schools as well as Lake George Charter School.

In addition to more traditional projects of livestock and family consumer sciences, 4-H places an emphasis on the STEM projects such as model rockets, robotics - using Lego MIndstorms, outdoor adventures, computer literacy, video production, as well as visual arts  such as graphic design, painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture.

Parents and grandparents are encouraged to become volunteer leaders that work with the youth in the 4-H club and project setting. You do not need to be an expert, just willing to learn, take the 4-H Volunteer Training and complete a mandatory background check.

4-H is a non-profit, educational program which is open to all youth ages 5-19 without discrimination.
