What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

4-H

4-H programming is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. For more than 100 years, 4 H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving youth a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better.

4-H programs are hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture, and civic engagement in a positive environment where the youth receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on leadership roles. Youth experience 4-H in every county and parish in the country through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs, and 4-H camps.

4-H reaches youth in every corner of America. Our network of 500,000 volunteers and 3,500 4-H professionals provides caring and supportive mentoring to all 6 million 4-H’ers, helping them grow into true leaders today and in life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Opportunity4ALL is our goal and our call to action.

Cooperative Extension is a partnership between more than 100 land-grant universities and local, state, and federal government. It delivers positive youth development programming built on the principles of inclusion and belonging and helps create opportunities for millions of youth.

National 4-H Council works to support Extension, and to provide ALL youth with access to opportunities and experiences so they develop the skills they need to succeed in life. We believe in the power of young people, and that when provided opportunities, they create positive change and address inequity in their communities.

Youth face a widening ‘opportunity gap’, a term increasingly being used by organizations and educators to describe how the circumstances in which people are born and/or live determine their opportunities in life. This opportunity gap must be addressed, and the playing field adjusted, so all children have an equal opportunity to succeed.
