4-H Clubs and their leaders provide hands-on, youth-led experience. Experiences where they learn by doing, grow from failure, express their ideas and use their influence to drive positive outcomes. Adult mentors provide guidance, ask questions, share learnings and encourage.
 
Students gain skills like confidence, independence, resilience and compassion through stages and developed through experiences, not instruction. These skills benefit for a lifetime.
