What is 4-H?
A club in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change! Georgia 4-H, a partner in public education, is youth and adults learning, growing, and working together to experience and accomplish the extraordinary.

4-H Today; Leaders tomorrow October 2013
By Thomas Gilbert
Vince Lombardi believed that players could be molded into leaders, and so does the 4-H youth organization. They back this philosophy by initiating leadership programs on the local club, district, state, and national levels. In celebration of National 4-H week, I would like to encourage middle and high school students to get involved with 4-H. I am so grateful that I have been involved in this dynamic youth development organization today that is helping me be a leader tomorrow!
