Description:

Mission

4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society.  This mission is carried out through the involvement of parents, volunteer leaders and other adults who organize and conduct educational subject/project experiences in community and family settings.  These “Learn-by- Doing” experiences are supported by research and extension functions represented by the land-grant universities, USDA and cooperating local governments with support from the National 4-H Council and other private support.
