Mission Statement

Our Promise to You... it's our mission! Illinois 4-H will foster belonging, independence, generosity and mastery in all youth it reaches. Illinois 4-H will create opportunities for youth to use their skills to influence and impact others Illinois 4-H will equip youth with skills and experiences for success Illinois 4-H will target its youth education programs to address Illinois issues


4-H began more than 100 years ago. The secret to our success? ... As kids change, we change. We’ve ADDED MORE PROJECTS to the foundation of agriculture-related projects... things like robotics, environment, aerospace. We’ve EXPANDED THE ROLES teens may explore ... things such as teaching, mentoring, and advocating for causes they support. We’ve EXPANDED into metro areas and adjusted 4-H to fit the lifestyle of active metro audiences. We’ve ENGAGED kids in more hands-on learning and stayed true to our belief of "Learn By Doing."
