4-H, the nation’s largest youth development organization, grows confident young people who are empowered for life today and prepared for career tomorrow. 4-H programs empower nearly six million young people across the U.S. through experiences that develop critical life skills. 4-H is the youth development program of our nation’s Cooperative Extension System and USDA and serves every county and parish in the U.S. through a network of 110 public universities and more than 3000 local Extension offices. Globally, 4-H collaborates with independent programs to empower one million youth in 50 countries. The research-backed 4-H experience grows young people who are four times more likely to contribute to their communities; two times more likely to make healthier choices; two times more likely to be civically active; and two times more likely to participate in STEM programs.
The mission of 4-H is to assist youth, and adults working with those youth, to gain additional knowledge, life skills and attitudes that will further their development as self-directing, contributing and productive members of society.
4-H Motto and Pledge
The 4-H motto: “To Make the Best Better.”
The 4-H Club 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.”
When reciting the pledge, members raise their right hand to their forehead when they say, “my head to clearer thinking.” They lower their hand to their hearts as they say, “my heart to greater loyalty.” At the line, “my hands to larger service,” they extend their hands in front of them, palms upward. At the last line, they stand at attention with their hands at their sides.
The 4-H emblem is federally protected under Section 18 U.S. Code 707 and belongs to the Congress of the United States. The official emblem is green with white H’s, the 4-H colors. The white symbolizes purity. The green represents nature’s most common color and is emblematic of youth, life and growth.
Official emblems can be downloaded from National 4-H Headquarters. You must have authorization from your local 4-H program to use these graphics.
