Description

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  The State Teen Council fosters mastery by empowering council members to research, develop, present and teach concepts related to leadership and civic engagement, belonging by building rapport among 4-H'ers with similar interests, independence by encouraging the management and education of serving on and leading committees and business meetings, and generosity through regular service events and building team rapport.

Since 2006, the Kentucky 4-H Program has been collecting responses from STC members on "What 4-H Means to Me...".  Check out the collected list of inspirational and heartwarming meaning that 4-H members has found through our program over the years.  Click here!
