Benefits of 4-H

Youth who participate in 4-H get what all young people need to succeed in life: confidence, compassion, connections with caring adults, and skills and opportunities to make contributions to their communities.

Youth gain life skills such as:

  • Communication
  • Citizenship
  • Decision making
  • Leadership
  • Interpersonal relations
  • Community and global awareness

A recent study of the 4-H program in Colorado further supported the benefits of 4-H.
