Despite the turbulent times we find ourselves in, our central purpose is unchanged. National 4‑H Council remains dedicated to a future in which millions more young people are engaged in Cooperative Extension’s high quality 4‑H youth development programs, and where 4‑H youth, volunteers and staff are representative of the diversity of our nation.
National 4‑H Council Mission:
To expand opportunities for all of America’s youth through increased investment and participation in 4‑H positive youth development.
Who We Serve and How:
National 4‑H Council (Council) is the private sector, non-profit partner of Cooperative Extension (Extension) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). 4‑H programs are implemented by the nation’s 100+ land-grant colleges and universities through Extension and its 3,000+ local offices across the country. Council supports Extension’s goal to reach millions more young people in three unique ways:
Convene the 4 H movement: Stimulate collective action on the nation’s most pressing issues.
Tell the 4 H Story: Leverage the power of trusted brand partners and 4 H alumni to elevate the visibility of 4 H.
Create Public-Private Partnerships: Generate financial resources to create opportunities for all youth.
