Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  4-H fosters mastery by giving youth the opportunities to learn valuable skills through project work, belonging by encouraging club members and teaching principles of leadership, independence by fostering an opportunity for self-determination in projects and activities, and generosity by connecting youth to their community through service. 

4-H programs are guided by the University of Kentucky Cooperative extension office in each county.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
