What is 4-h 

4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community and around the world through hands-on experience alongside their peers and caring adults. 4-H began over 100 years ago and has grown into the largest youth development program in the nation. 4-H delivers research-based programming around positive youth development. 4-H is delivered through America's 109 land-grant universities.  In Indiana, 4-H can be found in all 92 counties as delivered through Purdue Extension.                                                                     

4-H Mission: The Indiana 4-H Youth Development mission is to provide real-life educational opportunities that develop young people who positively impact their community and world.

4-H Vision: Indiana 4-H Youth Development strives to be the premier, community-based program empowering young people to reach their full potential.
