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.
What is 4-H?
4-H is America’s largest out-of-school education program for boys and girls. It is a worldwide youth development program available in every state and many countries. Youth, who participate in 4-H, get what all young people need to succeed in life–the confidence, compassion and connections with caring adults to make contributions to their communities.
4-H is based on the idea that young people should be regarded as resources to be developed. It is people sharing, learning, growing and becoming the best they can be.
4-H is life skills. Through real-life situations, 4-H helps youth develop life skills such as: communication, citizenship, decision-making, leadership, interpersonal relations and community and global awareness. Youth learn these practical skills through hundreds of projects like cooking, wildlife, livestock, nutrition, sewing, archery, shooting sports, ceramics, electricity, computers, science, and many more.
