4-H Programs Helps Youth Find Solutions
Four-H's innovative programs address many issues and problems facing America's youth today, such as violence, unemployment, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, unsafe sex, depression and suicide, and school failure.
The supportive environment of 4-H has a place for every young person in America, no matter where or under what circumstances he or she lives. Four-H helps youth reach their fullest potential by meeting the evolving needs of youth in suburban, urban and rural areas.
More than ever before, today's youth need a strong foundation to overcome the obstacles they face. Four-H helps them prepare for the future as they learn workforce skills, develop confidence and become responsible citizens.
In 4-H, youth invest in their future as they learn to use their time productively, explore their interests, develop their talents and adopt leadership roles in their communities.
Four-H'ers not only develop important life skills, but they also gain opportunities to expand their world by forming new friendships. Apathy is replaced with hope as youth get a glimpse of a positive future through exposure to new people, ideas and activities.
