4-H Youth Development

The mission of Minnesota 4-H Youth Development is to engage youth, in partnership with adults, in quality learning opportunities that enable them to shape and reach their full potential as active citizens in a global community.

Our programs deliver quality, research-based content that nurtures positive partnerships between youth and caring adults in safe learning environments.

4-H clubs contribute to youth who are caring, competent and citizens of character:
  • Learning by doing
  • Practicing leadership
  • Wide variety of projects
  • Positive out-of-school time
  • Science and Arts enrichment
  • Service to communities
  • And fun
