LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT


4-H programs are organized within four leadership development pillars. Community Engagement and Communication Programs in this pillar are designed to encourage youth to seek out ways to lend a hand, take action, and make a positive difference in the world around them. Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security This pillar builds on 4-H’s deep roots in rural agricultural communities, offering programs that help youth appreciate and learn about the food we eat and grow. Environment and Healthy Living Programs in this 4-H pillar offer opportunities for youth to discover how to be stewards of the environment, and to explore positive ways to stay healthy and active. Science and Technology Through our science and technology programming, youth can dive into hands-on, inquiry-based projects and activities that spark their curiosity.
