4-H Youth Opportunities

Health Hereoes

The Ohio 4-H Health HEROES program is back! This statewide teen healthy living advocacy group are called HEROES because they serve as Health Education Resources for Outreach, Engagement, and Service. Youth will learn about current issues and topics in healthy living, will be tasked to create an action plan to create change in their local community, and will be a part of a statewide cohort who cares about the health and well-being of Ohio youth.


Benefits of becoming a 4-H Health Hero are:

  • Learning about a variety of healthy living topics
  • Gaining valuable leadership and communication skills
  • Meeting other 4-H youth from across Ohio who are invested in healthy living
  • Leaving a positive impact on your family, friends, and community
  • Promoting the 4th H!


In previous years we have had youth focus on making change in health topics such as; mental health, vaping, opioids, and more.


Youth who are passionate about health and in grades 9 through 12 may apply! For more information, important dates, and expectations, you may check out Application is due Sunday, September 11th, 2022 by 11:59 pm.
