Mission of 4-H

4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.

The phrase “Learning by Doing” sums up the educational philosophy of the 4-H program. Young people learn best when they are involved in their learning.

Why is it called “4-H”?

The 4-H emblem is a four-leaf clover with an “H” on each leaf. The four “H”s seen on the clover stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health:

  •       Head:   4-H teaches your child how to use critical thinking skills and problem solving skills.
  •       Heart:   4-H will help your child learn respect for you, other, and the environment, as well as positive interpersonal communication skills.
  •       Hands:  Through 4-H, your child will gain hands-on experience in career preparation and service to others.
  •       Health:  4-H will give your child the ability to make healthy lifestyle choices and to manage change and challenges.
 Who can join?
  •       4-H provides age-appropriate opportunities for youth ages 5 to 18. Projects and activities fit the interests of both urban and rural youth, boys and girls.

  •       Regular and competitive memberships are available for youth ages 8 to 18 as of January 1 of the current year.
          These youth can participate in everything, including age-restricted projects such as shooting sports and horse.
