About Us

4-H Youth Development & Mentoring Programs

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.

Preparing young people to make a positive impact in their communities and the world.


  • 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.

    Who We Are

    4-H’ers across the nation are responding to challenges every day in their communities and their world.
        4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, empowering six million young people throughout the United States! With 611,800 volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 25 million alumni, 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.

    Proven Results

    4-H’ers are:

    • Four times more likely to make contributions to their communities (Grades 7-12);
    • Two times more likely to be civically active (Grades 8-12);
    • Two times more likely to make healthier choices (Grade 7);
    • Two times more likely to participate in Science, Engineering and Computer Technology programs during out-of-school time (Grades 10 – 12); and
    • 4-H girls are two times  more likely (Grade 10) and nearly three times more likely (Grade 12) to take part in science programs compared to girls in other out-of-school time activities.

    Who can join 4-H?

     The 4-Hs

    Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four Hs in 4-H, and they are the four values members work on through fun and engaging programs.
    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.
