4-H Youth Development
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
Many people relate their first public speaking experience to have been a 4-H demonstration or project talk.
Ages for membership are 7 - 19 by January 1 of the current year.
4-H Clover Symbol
The four leave clover is the national 4-H emblem. It is green and white, which makes us think of life, youth, growth and purity. The H's help tell the story of what we do.
The head is the governing body of our lives. It represents knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is learning facts but wisdom is knowing how to use those facts. We make lots of decisions in our club that require us to think.
All of our ideals and dreams come from the heart. We are loyal and help each member in our club.
Our hands represent our service to others. We use our hands to do projects, activities and community service which includes serving at the NRCS Banquet and things such as that.
We must be healthy to accomplish our goals.
I pledge -
my head to clearer thinking,
my heart to great loyalty,
my hands to larger service, and
my health to better living
for my club, my community, my country and my world.
