About 4-H

Missouri 4-H is about 4-H clubs but there’s lots more!  It's about young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be future leaders - from both rural and urban areas!

4-H is part of University of Missouri Extension and is publicly supported by county, state and federal governments.  Private resources, both human and financial,

4-H motto
To make the best better

4-H pledge
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.

4-H slogan
Learn to do by doing

4-H colors
The white in the 4-H flag symbolizes purity.  The green, nature's most common color, represents life, springtime and youth.

4-H club creed
I believe in 4-H club work for the opportunity it will give me to become a useful citizen.

I believe in the training of my HEAD for the power it will give me to think, to plan, and to reason.

I believe in the training of my HEART for the nobleness it will give me to become kind, sympathetic and true.

I believe in the training of my HANDS for the dignity it will give me to be helpful, useful and skillful.

I believe in the training of my HEALTH for the strength it will give me to enjoy life, resist disease and work efficiently.

I believe in my country, my state, my community and in my responsibility for their development.

In all of these things, I believe, and I am willing to dedicate my efforts for their fulfillment.
