Why is the 4-H Foundation Work important?

4-H is the largest youth organization in the country with more than six million members. Youth build life skills by leading hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture and civic engagement – helping them to grow confidence, independence, resilience and compassion. Adult mentors provide a positive environment where they learn by doing. This 4-H experience is delivered by a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation.

4-H gives young people guidance, tools and encouragement, and then puts them in the driver’s seat to make great things happen. Independent research proves the unparalleled impact of the 4-H experience in the lives of youth.
