National 4-H Strategic Plan – 4-H Youth Development: A 2025 Vision

View the National 4-H Strategic Plan.

4-H Vision
A world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change.

4-H Grows: A Promise to America’s Kids
In 2025, 4-H will reflect the population demographics, vulnerable populations, diverse needs and social conditions of the country. This vision has the elements of inclusion, caring adults, serving at minimum 1 in 5 youth, and the volunteers and staff reflect the diversity of the population.

4-H Mission
4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults. The mission of 4-H is to provide meaningful opportunities for all youth and adults to work together to create sustainable community change. This is accomplished within three primary content areas, or mission areas – civic engagement and leadership, healthy living, and science. These mission areas reiterate the founding purposes of Extension through agriculture (e.g., community leadership, quality of life, and technology transfer) in the context of 21st century challenges and opportunities.
