|What is 4-H really about?|
|We would like to reemphasize the role 4-H plays in the growth of youth.|
|Let’s start with the 4-H pledge:|
|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.|
When we all join 4-H, either as a member or leader, we have the goal to "make the best better". It takes the learning and application of all four H’s in this program to create well rounded, self-motivated, responsible citizens.
Much of the way youth learn these important traits is through participation at the club meetings and activities. The 4-H member’s job is to actively participate in the opportunities the leader’s, older youth and Extension staff provide. The 4-H adult leader, teen leader, and junior leader’s job is to teach the member’s how to think, not what to think. Leader's should continually seek out new and creative ways to help make "the best better". The Extension office will continue to provide/facilitate opportunities for leaders and youth to enhance this growth through field days, clinics, shows, camps, etc. Now is the time for clubs to sit down together and set your goals as a club and as individual members. Let us work together to reach the goals we all intended to achieve when we joined the 4-H program.
