A group of Florida 4-H Youth roast marshmallows around a campfire



Research shows that, 4-H delivered through community clubs have the most impact on youth as they provide multiple layers of positive youth development experiences. They are youth led, volunteer driven, and agent supported while providing the longest participation duration which enables the development of the four essential elements-belonging, mastery, independence and generosity.

In Polk County, the youth attain meaningful life skills enabling them to become resilient young adults who can effectively communicate, develop and maintain positive relationships, through their participation in 4-H community clubs.
