4-H is about youth and adults working together as partners in designing and implementing club and individual plans for activities and events.Positive youth development is the primary goal of 4-H.
- The project area serves as the vehicle for members to learn and master project-specific skills while developing basic life skills. All projects support the ultimate goal for the 4-H member to develop positive personal assets needed to live successfully in a diverse and changing world.
- 4-H clubs usually meet in the evenings or on weekends and offer self-chosen multiple learning experiences (projects) and activities.
Participation in 4-H has shown many positive outcomes for youth. Specifically, 4-H participants have higher participation in civic contribution, higher grades, increased healthy habits, and higher participation in science than other youth (Learner et al., 2005)
4-H is one of the largest youth development organizations in the United States. 4-H is found in almost every county across the nation and enjoys a partnership between the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the state land-grant universities (e.g., University of California), and local county governments.
