4-H is the nation's largest youth development and empowerment organization. In Montana, 4-H reaches nearly 20,000 youth in all 56 counties each year!

They stand for Head, Heart, Hands and Heath.

The 4-H Pledge:

I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, my health to better living, for my club, my community, my country and my world.

4-H Members participate in projects that teach life skills through hands-on learning. Projects range from leadership, shooting sports, animals, robotics and more. Youth not only learn life skills but they learn ways to give back to their community through service activities. Members can also experience outdoor camping adventures, participate in local government, leadership conferences, and a variety of skill-based competitions. 4-H is what you want it to be!

A 4-H Club is the foundation of the 4-H experience. You are encouraged to select a club based off of your location, project interest and schedule. Club meetings are ran by youth officers to provide leadership for community service activities, social gatherings, and educational experiences. Club leaders are a great resource for families in 4-H.
