 4-H Youth Development

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.

4-H cloverCaring adults who support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential. Adults can share guidance, knowledge and wisdom, as well as model respect and provide skills training. Each of the four H's of the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop.

Head, critical thinking, problem solving;
Heart, self-discipline, integrity, communication;
Hands, serving others; and
Health, choosing healthy lifestyles.

In 4-H, youth have fun with a purpose!
