Due to the fact that strengths exist in each and every person and their aim to improve the world around us is great, the organization has helped six million young people across the U.S. who are the definition of True Leaders.
What makes them special is the fact that these people make a positive impact on their community with skills they learned in 4‑H daily.
The 4‑H Youth in Action Program is designed for young leaders who are interested in working in agriculture, civic engagement, healthy living and STEM.
