4H Fall

Franklin County 4-H


4-H began as a simultaneous response to needs throughout the country, rather than as the idea of one individual. The goal of the program is to extend agricultural education to rural youth by organizing boys and girls clubs and through “learning by doing". The mission of UF IFAS 4-H is to develop youth programs using a learn-by-doing approach in order to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. This mission is accomplished by creating safe and inclusive learning environments, involving caring adults, and utilizing the expertise and resources of the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system. Florida 4-H aspires to be the leading youth development program that creates positive change in youth, families, and communities. The PLEDGE of Florida 4-H is simple: I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, and my health to better living. For my club, my community, my country and my world. Be apart of something amazing - join today!!
