Mission Statement

4-H youth development education creates supportive environments for all youth and adults to reach their fullest potential. In support of this mission we: provide formal & non-formal community-focused experiential learning; develop skills that benefit youth throughout life; foster leadership and volunteerism in youth and adults; build internal and external partnerships for programming and funding; strengthen families and communities; and use research based knowledge and the land grant university system. Achievement of this mission will result in capable, competent, and caring citizens.

Description

4-H is the youth development education program of Cooperative Extension, which is conducted jointly by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the state land grant university Washington State University, and your county government. Today 4-H is everywhere---in cities, suburbs, small towns, and rural communities. 4-H is the largest youth development organization in the nation. Membership is open to youths in kindergarten who have reached their 5th birthday before January 1 of the current 4-H year (October 1-September 30), through those in the 12th grade or those who have not reached their 19th birthday before January 1 of the current 4-H year. Special Education youths older than 19 may be enrolled with the approval of the County 4-H Agent. The 4-H program is delivered at the county level in Washington in several different ways. The method of enrollment depends on the delivery mode and the degree of ongoing group contact.
