4-H Mission

The mission of 4-H is to help young people develop their potential. This is done by encouraging them to participate in practical real-life experiences. As a result of this involvement, they should be better able to lead satisfying lives as responsible, self directing, members of society.

The 4-H Clover

The 4-H Emblem is a four leaf clover that has an "H" on each leaf, representing Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.
The clover is green to symbolize growth and youth, and the white color of the H's represents sincerity and honesty.
The clover was adopted  in 1909.  National 4-H has a policy about the proper use of the clover to help preserve its special character.
