4-H is a community of young people across Kansas engaged in learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Caring adults who support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential. Adults can share guidance, knowledge and wisdom, as well as model respect and provide skills training. Contact your local extension office to learn about how youth can join 4-H and how you can get involved making a difference as an adult volunteer!
4-H is a nationwide program. Each of the four H’s of the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop.
- Head, critical thinking, problem solving;
- Heart, self-discipline, integrity, communication;
- Hands, serving others; and
- Health, choosing healthy lifestyles.
