Citizenship and service projects

Citizenship and service are key components of 4-H’s Civic Engagement area. These projects empower youth to become well-informed citizens. Youth are engaged in projects and programs in which they will share a voice, influence others, and learn decision-making skills. 4-H civic engagement programs equip youth the leadership skills they need to become leaders today and tomorrow.

Giving back to communities is a hallmark of the 4-H program. While working together to solve problems, youth learn teamwork, critical thinking, and build a sense of compassion.
