4-H CAPITAL inspires youth to develop into inquiring scientists, citizens of character, partners in service, and engaged community members through participation in project-based learning experiences and collaborative community involvement.

  • About Us
    4-H CAPITAL provides high quality after-school enrichment programs that focus on science, engineering and technology. We provide hands-on learning experiences that not only help youth become successful adults but also reduce risk-taking behaviors that inhibit success. By establishing positive relationships with the youth we serve, 4-H CAPITAL allows our 4-H Club members to acquire science and inquiry-based knowledge and skills, build character, and develop life skills in a fun learning environment that will enable them to become self-directing, productive members of society.

Travis County 4-H CAPITAL Programs

4-H CAPITAL

4-H CAPITAL provides after-school activities and curricula in the areas of Animal Science, Natural Resources, Garden Science, and Engineering/Tinkering. We primarily serve low income youth in elementary and middle schools around Austin. Our goal is to inspire students to be creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners. We also strive to increase their science capital, which means we are consistently looking for ways for students to see themselves as scientists!
