It’s National 4-H Week and that’s reason to celebrate. 4-H got its start in rural fields, but today it’s everywhere—from city streets and schools, to neighborhoods and universities. That’s why 4-H has stayed important for more than 100 years. It changes with me and you. Don’t worry. 4-H is still here in small towns across America and stronger than ever. Our Mission in 2018 is ADVENTURE.

Mission: Adventure –Join the Team. Change the World.
