Mission Statement

The Palm Beach UF/IFAS Extension 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. This mission is accomplished by creating safe and inclusive learning environments, involving caring adults, and utilizing the expertise and resources of the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system.

Description

Thousands of Palm Beach County youth between the ages of 5 and 18 benefit from 4-H each year. 4-H staff, volunteers and our partners create a wealth of opportunities that help young people learn and grow. Clubs, afterschool programs, in-school programs, camps, fair, leadership opportunities and a wide array of special events serve as opportunities for children to develop Competence, Confidence, Character, Caring and Connection. By using a "learn-by-doing" approach that focuses on fun, hands-on, real world activities youth are able to explore subjects they love while gaining critical life skills.


Palm Beach County 4-H is a partnership between University of Florida/IFAS Extension Service and Palm Beach County Government. Together, in collaboration with a diverse team of local, state and federal partners we utilize the latest research based information to create intentional, long-term, positive youth development opportunities.
