4-H: Leaders for Life
4-H Faculty, Staff and Volunteers create multiple opportunities for youth. 4-H project work and related educational experiences help youth explore interests in citizenship, communications and leadership. 4-H Youth report 3 times more opportunities than their non-4-H peers to engage in meaningful community leadership roles. This interest in leadership and community service translates to a 70% greater likelihood of 4-H members to attend college compared to youth participating in other out-of school programs. 4-H is growing the leaders of tomorrow today. For information on joining 4-H, contact your local Extension Office.
