What is 4-H?

4-H is a community of more than 6.5 million young people across American learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.

4-Hers participate in fun, hands-on learning activities supported by the latest research of land grant universities that are focused on three areas: healthy living, citizenship, and science, engineering, and technology.  Youth can experience 4-H by becoming a member of a 4-H club, attending a 4-H camp, or by joining school-based or after school 4-H programs.

What do the four H’s in 4-H stand for?

Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four H’s 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

What is 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.”
