The goal of the North Carolina 4-H Program is to assist youth and adults in becoming competent, coping and contributing members of a global society, developing life skills through planned learn-by-doing experiences.
North Carolina Cooperative Extension at NC State University and NC A&T State University conducts the 4-H program.
4-H is the largest youth organization in North Carolina with 21,221 youth and adult volunteers and more than 240,000 participants. 4-H is best identified by its green four-leaf clover with an H on each leaf. The four H’s on the emblem stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. 4-H is the only youth organization based at land-grant universities
and provides the first experience many youth have with higher education.
