4-H is an Important Community Development Component


Posted: October 9, 2012


Pennsylvania is celebrating 100 years of positive youth development through 4-H clubs this year. While you may think of 4-H as kids raising cows and garden vegetables and making robots, there is a very strong community development component too.

4-H members educate the public about how to take care of backyard chickens.

Through 4-H clubs, thousands of youth have learned about their communities, provided service to their communities, and learned the skills to take leadership roles in their communities as adults.


Some 4-H clubs tour the local firehouse, talk with EMS personnel, attend a municipal meeting, talk with a municipal official about his/her job, and learn how their community works.
