This page contains the official constitution to Iowa State University Collegiate 4-H.
As Iowa 4-H’ers’ parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other compassionate adult family members, you are the foundation upon which your child’s healthy growth and development depend, and you play a natural role in providing consistent opportunities for 4-H children and youth to learn by doing.
4-H Alumni enjoy a special affinity for life-long learning. They appreciate goals set and goals met. They recognize how the communication, leadership and teamwork skills that were nurtured through 4-H experiences have contributed to their success as adults.
Collegiate 4-H shall strive to follow the national motto, Continuing to Serve, Serving to Continue. We will serve the needs of our members, Iowa 4-H, the students of Iowa State University and the surrounding 4-H community. We will help to build the future leaders of 4-H through experience in the 4-H program on campus and across the state, striving to benefit youth in the 4-H program. We will follow the 4-H motto of Making the Best Better.
4-H is a community of 6 million young people across the world who are learning how to live healthily, be leaders, become engaged in their communities, and use science and technology to make good decisions for their future and their communities’ future.

Independent 4-H members participate in planned learning outside of a club setting. Their work is self-directed with guidance and support of parents and mentors. Self-study, home study, mentoring or shadowing with an “expert,” and whole families learning together are examples of 4-H independent membership.
4-H youth programs provide opportunities for youth to develop skills they can use throughout their life. Iowa 4-H builds upon a century of experience as it fosters positive youth development that is based on the needs and strengths of youth, their families, and communities.
4-H learning experiences are based on the principles and practices of positive youth development. Positive youth development views young people as vital resources with assets and potentials to be developed rather than as problems to be managed.
