4-H Youth

What is 4-H?

A good description of the 4-H program in Oregon is given in the publication Facts About 4-H (4-H 0244L).

The CLOVER answers more detailed questions about the statewide 4-H program.

4-H Pledge (Engish)

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.

Promesa 4H (Spanish)

Prometo usar mi mente para pensar con más claridad,

mi corazón para ser más leal,

mis manos para ser más servicial,

mi salud para cuidarme más,

por mi club, mi comunidad, mi país y mi mundo.

There are currently more than 1,100 members enrolled in the Jackson County 4-H program. We hope that you will soon join us. Explore various 4-H Project Areas 

We are limited by the number of leaders who are willing to serve. Thus, we are not always able to accommodate all who are interested. If you are willing to share your time and talent with kids, please let us know. We can show you how you can make a difference in the life of a child. Volunteer adults who serve as 4-H leaders are considered volunteer faculty members of Oregon State University. As a volunteer, you have access to research and information from the university. We hope this site answers your basic questions about our program. Please like us on Facebook too!
