4-H has a long history of helping youth "learn by doing". When youth are thoughtfully guided through the do-reflect-apply process in an interest area of their choice, there is tremendous potential for positive youth development and growth. 4-H focuses on teaching new topics and life skills development. Trained 4-H volunteers facilitate the learning that occurs in non-formal settings like 4-H club meetings and activities. The 4-H result is a fun fulfilling learning experience.
