How Does 4–H Grow?

— Written By Donna Tulley and last updated by

4-H is a youth organization committed to building citizen leaders with marketable skills to succeed in today’s global society.

· 4-H provides pathways for youth to view learning as relevant to the world around them,

· to connect with their communities, and to become intentionally concerned and

· contributing citizens of their communities and the state of North Carolina. North Carolina Cooperative Extension at NC State University and NC A&T State University conducts the 4-H program.

4-H is the largest youth organization in North Carolina with 21,221 youth and adult volunteers and more than 240,926 participants. 4-H is best identified by its green four-leaf clover with an H on each leaf. The four H’s on the emblem stand for Head, Heart, Hands and Health. 4-H is the only youth organization based at land-grant universities and provides the first exposure many youths have with higher education.
