4-H Youth Development
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.
Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging, that's what Georgia 4-H is all about. As a program of the UGA Extension, 4-H is part of the nationwide Extension network.
4-H'ers are known for sharing their research-based knowledge and technology to people where they live and work. 4-H combines federal, state, and local expertise and resources.
4-H enhances the school curriculum and teaches life skills to youths between ages of 9 through 19 in Haralson County. Programs such as: character education, leadership education, and environmental awareness is conducted in schools during and after school hours. These programs are also designed to assist youth in their educational growth and development.
