True Leaders in Service

True Leaders in Service, April 1 to 30, 2019

True Leaders in Service was created in 2017 as a way for all 4-H members to say “thank you” to their communities, counties, and states for all the support they have provided to 4-H for over 100 years.

True Leaders in Service, a month-long community service activation, officially kicks off the first day of April, and culminates with the National 4-H Day of Service on Saturday, April 27.

Thousands of 4-H’ers will venture out into their communities throughout the month of April to do what 4-H’ers do best: lead in service to tackle community challenges and help meet the needs of others.


National 4-H Day of Service - April 27, 2019

The National 4-H Day of Service on April 27 will take place in every county across the country. 4-H members, adult volunteers and friends will help improve their communities by adopting a service project. These projects can be done as individuals, as an entire county 4-H program, or anything in between. No matter the project, this is a day that will make a difference!


Register all of the service projects and service learning projects that you are working on in April.
