The Power of Youth in Action

There is no greater force for positive change than youth taking action. And in 4-H, young people all over the nation find the inspiration, courage and confidence to make good things happen. The 4-H experience is a very special kind of leadership experience that uniquely prepares millions of young people to step up to the challenge of a complex and changing world. 

Through camp counselor experiences and local, regional and state leadership opportunities our local youth will be the leaders of the future. They are not waiting to take the lead. They are having an impact now- they are leading their clubs community service projects, mentoring younger members and serving on committees in their 4-H clubs and schools.

This is the enormous public value of 4-H and our nation’s Cooperative Extension System, which implements 4-H programming through more than one hundred public universities and thousands of local offices. Every county, every city, every town, every community benefits from the opportunities that 4-H provides young people.

Of course, none of this is possible without the support of those who believe in the promise of 4-H. The generosity and commitment of our alumni, volunteers, and community supporters and sponsors allows us to nurture and grow the many innovative programs developed through 4-H’s unique youth-adult partnerships. Many of our 4-H programs would not be able to occur without the generosity of the community and local business. We are grateful for the continued support.

If actions speak louder than words, then certainly we are hearing the sound of progress, growth and prosperity through our 4-H members and we thank all of you who have helped us succeed.
