The mission of 4-H is...
To prepare youth to become competent, contributing and responsible adults. This process is accomplished by involving youth in project work, community service projects and leadership activities with trained caring adult volunteers. As a result, 4-H alumni become adults who are capable, caring and competent and who are able to meet the needs of a diverse and changing society.
Youth to be involved in fun, informal, hands-on learning experiences which foster skill and character development.
4-H allows all youth to:
- have fun;
- gain public speaking skills; life skills; and leadership skills;
- gain proficiency in various subject matters of their choosing;
- learn civic responsibility by doing community service projects
- set goals, develop strategies to reach those goals, and evaluate progress
