What is 4-H?

4-H Mission:
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished through “hands on” learning experiences focused on the following core values: Agriculture, Citizenship, Communication Skills, Environment, Family & Consumer Science, and Leadership.
