What is 4 h

WHAT IS 4-H?

  • The 4-H movement supports young people from elementary school through high school with programs designed to shape future leaders and innovators. Fueled by research-driven programming, 4-H'ers engage in hands-on learning activities in the areas of science, citizenship and healthy living. 

  • The caring support of adult volunteers and mentors inspires young people in 4-H to work collaboratively, take the lead on their own projects and set and achieve goals with confidence. 4-H’ers chart their own course, explore important issues and define their place in the world. 4-H’ers stand up for themselves and their communities.

  • These pivotal experiences build a foundation of leadership and skills for success in their future careers.

    4 h survives solely on volunteers

    4-H Survives Solely on Volunteers

    What 4-H volunteers can gain…

    • Studies indicate that volunteers experience greater health benefits and, in some cases, individuals can combat the onset of depression simply by volunteering. Other benefits include increased social skills and an expanded social network.

    • 4-H volunteers can make a positive difference in children's lives. This can trigger a sense of commitment, pride and accomplishment, which leads to a more positive self-image. The more positive your self-image, the more likely you are to set and accomplish positive personal goals.

    • As you help children develop communication and teamwork skills, you're also strengthening them in yourself. Some volunteers may open new doors for employment based on the skills they have learned and developed.

    • Today, when families are busier than ever and time seems limited, having a positive adult role model can truly influence children's path. Volunteering with 4-H allows these positive impacts to occur.
