Responsibility Grows Here

4-H Youth Development

4-H is a nationwide program led by state land-grant universities in cooperation with local county/district extension councils. In Kansas, 4-H is the largest youth educational program, aside from public schools. Each of the four H's on the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop in 4-H.

What Youth Learn By Being A 4-H Member:

Kansas 4-H youth development believes that youth will gain the 5 C's throughout their 4-H career:

  1. Caring
  2. Confidence
  3. Connection
  4. Character
  5. Competence

It is believed that youth who develop these five core competencies will develop a sixth C, and make a 'Contribution' to their communities.

 

4-H... Making an Impact!!

Additional benefits of 4-H were measured through an impact study completed by the Youth Development Program Focus Team (PFT). The purpose of the study was to gain insight from 4-Hers in the state of Kansas about what core values they earned through 4-H. The conclusions of the study are shown in the following report.
