About the club

Poultry Pack 4-H Club is your Wake County 4-H club with an emphasis on poultry-related activities and projects. The goal of this club is to introduce youth to poultry science and give them hands-on opportunities with poultry from embryology stages to adult birds while incorporating the life skills such as leadership and citizenship which are fundamental to the 4-H model. Youth will learn how a 4-H club meeting, complete with officers and parliamentary procedure, will operate. Since the Poultry Pack 4-H Club is housed on campus, members will also have the opportunity to become acquainted with the inner workings of NC State University.

Club information

Each year, each youth will be expected to complete a project. This can include one of the projects that will be incorporated into our designated curriculum or it can be designed specifically for the student. Activities we will have the opportunity to participate in will include the Poultry Judging Team, Avian Bowl Team and Youth Market Turkey Show.

About 4-H

4-H Mission

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.

4-H Symbol

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.
