Don't miss out on the chance to celebrate your 4-H pride this year with National 4-H Week!

Research has proven that participation in 4-H has a significant positive impact on young people. Recent findings from the Tufts University 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development indicate that, when compared to their peers, young people in 4-H are:

  • Nearly 4 times more likely to contribute to their communities
  • Two times more likely to pursue healthy behaviors
  • Two times more likely to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs outside of school time.
  • 4-H, the largest youth development organization in the world, is a community of seven million young people across the globe learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. In the U.S., 4-H programs are implemented by the 109 land grant universities and the Cooperative Extension System through their 3,100 local Extension offices across the country. Overseas, 4-H programs operate throughout more than 50 countries.
