Community Involvement

4 H members testifying before a WI committee.

4‑H community involvement programs empower young people to be well-informed citizens who are actively engaged in their communities and the world. Youth learn about civic affairs, build decision-making skills and develop a sense of understanding and confidence in relating and connecting to other people. These life skills help grow 4-H youth into true leaders. There are project options for members in grade 3 -12. Our citizenship programs engage youth in programs, organizations, and communities where they share a voice, influence, and decision-making authority. 4-H citizenship programs equip young people with confidence and leadership skills to be leaders today and tomorrow.
