Ensure that no youth go without proper medical or behavioral health care and to address risk reduction among at risk youth.
4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults
4-H’s learning opportunities are intentionally designed around four essential elements necessary for positive youth development by providing youth with: supervised independence, a sense of belonging with a positive group, a spirit of generosity toward others, and a wide variety of opportunities to master life challenges. The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical, “learn by doing,” experiences encourages youth to experiment, innovate and think independently.
4-H is the only youth development program with direct access to technological advances from university research. Youth learn leadership, citizenship, and life skills through more than 100 projects with topics as varied as rocketry, GPS mapping, computer game design, public speaking, photography, nutrition, and community service
