Citizenship and Civic Engagement

Citizenship and Civic Engagement is one of 4-H's three main mission mandates.

"Since its inception, 4-H has placed emphasis on the importance of young people being engaged, well-informed
citizens. By connecting to their communities and community leaders, youth understand their role in civic affairs
and expand their role in decision making processes. It’s clear that civic engagement provides the foundation
that helps youth understand the 'big picture' of life and find purpose and meaning." --National 4-H
