4-H YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
What is 4-H?
4-H is a youth organization that belongs to the members, their families and other interested adults who serve as volunteers. Professional leadership is given by Cooperative Extension Service faculty of Purdue University. Support for 4-H programs is a joint effort of the local county government, Purdue University, and the United States Department of Agriculture.
4-H is young people sharing, doing, and learning together in all kinds of projects, events and activities in non-formal situations with guidance from their families and other adult volunteers. Members choose a project or projects that meet their needs and the places where they live. Group activities and events such as drama, trips, camps, fairs, shows, and conferences provide additional opportunities and learning experiences.
4-H is open to all youth and adults regardless of their ethnic background, race or personal creed. Most 4-H clubs have meetings for the entire membership once a month. During these business meetings, decisions are made relative to group-sponsored activities, community service efforts, project opportunities, fund-raising efforts, etc.
