What is Georgia 4-H?
A world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts
for positive change!
What is the mission of Georgia 4-H?
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge,
developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them
to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society.
This mission is accomplished, through "hands on" learning experiences,
focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness,
leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy
conservation, and citizenship.
Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging, that's what
Georgia 4-H is all about. As a program of the University of Georgia College
of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension System,
4-H is part of the nationwide Extension network.
4-H'ers are known for sharing their research-based knowledge and technology
to people where they live and work. 4-H combines federal, state, and
local expertise and resources.
