4-H brings youth together to learn new ideas, develop skills, work cooperatively to problem-solve community issues and needs, and to become leaders in their community.  The basis for the program is to utilize their HEADS for clearer thinking, HEARTS for greater loyalty, HANDS for larger service, & HEALTH for better living.  Not just for their own benefit, but for their club, community, country & their world.
