4-H emphasizes the importance of looking at the big picture; that youth need to see beyond themselves and focus on how their actions affect their relationships, their community, the environment and society as a whole.

4-H is based on a "Learn To Do By Doing" philosophy.
Members and volunteer leaders come together to create a 4-H club, where members learn about a selected topic through hands-on activities and mentorship.
4-H gives youth opportunities to learn new things through a dedicated group of volunteer leaders.
4-H youth learn the skills needed to contribute to making this a better world. Many of them go on to become leaders in their communities.
