4-H Youth Development-test

Head - Heart - Hands - Health

4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. 4-H programs are implemented by the 109 Land Grant Universities and the Cooperative Extension System through their 3,100 local Extension offices across the country…

Belonging to 4-H gives many educational opportunities each time you participate in an activity.  “Learning by doing” through hands-on activities and community involvement empowers 4-H members to develop and strengthen life skills.  We have found that behind each successful 4-H member stands 4-H parents/families with encouragement, guidance, and support.

4-H is a unique educational program for students in elementary through high school. It encourages diverse groups of youth to develop their skills and talents to the fullest. As 4-H’ers, youth actively participate in activities, events and projects that develop and strengthen life skills. 4-H is open to everyone. Each county has exciting and fun programs!

4-H is first offered as a 4th grader and continues to one’s Senior Year. Our local 4-H agents meet with 4th thru 8th graders each month at school through-out the school year. 9th thru 12th graders have information made readily available to them for each activity offered that they may wish to participate in.

4-H Pledge

I pledge my Head to clearer thinking,

my Heart to greater loyalty,

my Hands to larger service,

and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country and my world.
