For more than 100 years, 4-H has stood behind the idea that youth is the single strongest catalyst for change. What began as a way to give rural youth new agricultural skills, today it has grown into a global organization that teaches a range of life skills.

4-H is dedicated to positive youth development and helping youth step up to the challenges in a complex and changing world. 4-H is dedicated to helping cultivate the next generation of leaders and tackling the nation’s top challenges such as the shortage of skilled professionals, maintaining our global competiveness, encouraging civic involvement, and becoming a healthier society.

The 4-H movement began around the start of the 20th Century and revolutionized how science was taught outside the classroom -- through practical, hands-on programs and experiences. 4-H was also one of the first organizations in America that taught young people leadership skills and how to positively impact their communities.

Head, Heart, Hands, and Health --
the four values members work on
Head - Managing, Thinking
Heart - Relating, Caring
Hands - Giving, Working
Health - Being, Living

The 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.

4-H Mission -- 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.
4-H Vision -- A world in which youth and adults learn, grow and work together as catalysts for positive change.

According to an in-depth, longitudinal study conducted by the Institute
for Applied Research in Youth Development, Tufts University 4-H youth are three times more likely to actively contribute to their communities and have higher educational achievement. Learn more at
