In Missouri 4-H we believe in...

Head value logo Clearer Thinking by promoting character, maintaining excellence, and upholding the mission and honored programmatic traditions of 4-H.
Heart value logo Greater Loyalty by embracing diversity and inclusion while encouraging and supporting innovation, youth leadership, and futures.

Hands value logo Larger Service by encouraging meaningful, positive youth adult partnerships, community service, and engagement.
Health value logo Better Living by supporting youth to become health, respectful, and productive members of society.

Engaging youth as valued, contributing members of their communities in partnership with caring adults.

4-H is part of University of Missouri Extension and is publicly supported by county, state and federal governments as well as private resources, both human and financial. 4-H welcomes all Missouri youth.

As America's largest youth development organization, 4-H offers youth, families, and adult volunteers of all ages many ways to engage, grow and serve – through clubs, camps, contests, conferences, special interest groups, in-school and afterschool programs, and more! It's about young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be future leaders – from both rural and urban areas.

The synergy of effective past and present programs, dedicated volunteers and spirited young people will only continue to manifest our vision of a world in which both young people and adults learn, grow and work together as catalysts for positive change.
