4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. We reach out to kids and their families to build skills for real life. WSU 4-H Youth Development is committed to providing safe and inclusive environments for all youth and adults regardless of race; sex; gender; sexual orientation; gender identity; gender expression; religion; age; color; creed; national or ethnic origin; civic engagement; physical, mental, or sensory ability; genetic information; and/or status as an honorably discharged veteran or member of the military.


4-H Mission

4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.

Washington State 4-H Youth Development education creates supportive environments for all youth and families to reach their fullest potential. This will be accomplished through a systemic approach of foundation and mission driven science to meet our goals to:

  • provide formal and non-formal experiential learning,
  • develop skills that benefit youth throughout life,
  • foster leadership and volunteerism in youth and adults,
  • build internal and external partnerships for programming and funding,
  • strengthen families and communities,
  • employ research based knowledge and the land grant university system, and
  • embrace and expand the traditions of the 4-H Youth Program.

4-H Vision

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

Washington State University 4-H Youth Development is developing young people to become productive citizens who are engaged in positive change, meeting the needs of a diverse and changing society.
