What is 4-H?
4-H is a non-formal educational, youth development program offered to individuals age 5 to 19. Regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, gender, or handicap. Ohio 4-H membership is for young people age 5 or in Kindergarten through age 18, as of January 1.
Youth are involved in hands-on, experiential learning that allows learning by doing. All 4-H programs focus on active involvement and quality experiences which stimulate lifelong learning of values and skills
The 4-H Motto
"To Make the Best Better."
The 4-H Pledge
My head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service and
My health to better living, for my Club, my Community, my Country and my World.
The 4-H Creed
I believe in 4-H Club work for the opportunity it will give me to become a useful citizen.
I believe in the training of my HEAD for the power it will give me to think, plan and to reason.
I believe in the training of my HEART for the nobleness it will give me to be kind, sympathetic and true.
I believe in the training of my HANDS for the ability it will give me to helpful, skillful and useful.
I believe in the training of my HEALTH for the strength it will give me to enjoy life, resist disease and to work efficiently.
I believe in my country, my state and my community and in my responsibility for their development.
In all these things I believe, and am willing to dedicate my efforts to their fulfillment.
The Official 4-H Emblem
Is a green, four-leaf clover with a white "H" on each clover leaf. The four H's stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.
The National 4-H Creed for Leaders:
The 4-H member is more important than the 4-H project.
Learning how to do the project is more important than the project itself.
4-H'ers should be their own best exhibits.
No award is worth sacrificing the reputation of a member or a leader.
Competition should be given no more emphasis than other fundamentals of 4-H work.
Enthusiasm is caught, not taught.
To learn by doing is fundamental in any sound educational program and is characteristic of the 4-H program.
Generally speaking, there is more than one good way to do most things.
Every 4-H member needs to be noticed, to feel important, to win and be praised (leaders, too).
Our job as leader is to teach 4-H members how to think, not what to think.
