WHAT COOPERATIVE
EXTENSION CAN PROVIDE
YOU…
WHAT IS 4-H?
• The 4-H movement supports young people from elementary school through
high school with programs designed to shape future leaders and innovators.
Fueled by research-driven programming, 4-H'ers engage in hands-on
learning activities in the areas of science, citizenship and healthy living.
• The caring support of adult volunteers and mentors inspires young people in
4-H to work collaboratively, take the lead on their own projects and set and
achieve goals with confidence. 4-H’ers chart their own course, explore
important issues and define their place in the world. 4-H’ers stand up for
themselves and their communities.
• These pivotal experiences build a foundation of leadership and skills for
success in their future careers.
THE HEART OF 4-H
• 4-H Mission
4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working
and learning in partnership with caring adults.
• 4-H Vision
A world in which youth and adults learn, grow and work
together as catalysts for positive change.
THE FOUR H’S???
WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
• The 4-Hs
Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four Hs in 4-H, and they are the four
values members work on through fun and engaging programs.
Head - Managing, Thinking
Heart - Relating, Caring
Hands - Giving, Working
Health - Being, Living
• The 4-H Pledge
I pledge my head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service,
and my health to better living,
for my club, my community, my country, and my world.

4-H Survives Solely on Volunteers
What 4-H volunteers can gain…
• Studies indicate that volunteers experience greater health benefits and, in some cases,
individuals can combat the onset of depression simply by volunteering. Other benefits
include increased social skills and an expanded social network.
• 4-H volunteers can make a positive difference in children's lives. This can trigger a
sense of commitment, pride and accomplishment, which leads to a more positive selfimage. The more positive your self-image, the more likely you are to set and accomplish
positive personal goals.
• As you help children develop communication and teamwork skills, you're also
strengthening them in yourself. Some volunteers may open new doors for employment
based on the skills they have learned and developed.
• Today, when families are busier than ever and time seems limited, having a positive
adult role model can truly influence children's path. Volunteering with 4-H allows these
positive impacts to occur.

ACTIVITY
THANK YOU
• We appreciate ALL of our volunteers! Without their help in 4-H,
great opportunities like these and so much more would not be
possible.
• It is our hope that a 4-H Advisory Council will only
further enhance our programming abilities, reach,
involvement, and advocacy.
Question of the Day….
• What do you see young people in your area doing these days?
• How do you think 4-H can help make these young people more productive as citizens?
Please divide into two groups
Discuss question 1 or 2
Jot down group responses on sheet provided

Expectations
• 4-H Program Advocacy & Marketing
• Review Current 4-H Program Efficiency, Influence, and Reach
• Suggest and/or Assist with New 4-H Program Ideas & Information
• Lead 4-H Fundraising and/or Program Sponsorship & Donation Efforts
• Overall the Advisory Council is not to be a governing body but rather a
supportive board to suggest, recommend, give advice/advise, assist, and
provide feedback as to what's working/not working, etc.
