Vision: Preparing Iowa’s youth to be successful, contributing members of society.

Mission: 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential through youth-adult partnerships and research-based experiences.

The Guthrie County 4-H Youth Development Program provides opportunities for youth to develop skills that they can use now and throughout their lives. Iowa 4-H builds upon a century of experience as it fosters positive youth development, based on the needs and strengths of youth, their families, and communities. At Guthrie County 4-H we value:

  • Youth as powerful members of society
  • Youth and adults as caring partners
  • Learning as a lifelong commitment
  • Diversity and social conscience
  • Doing our best and making it better

The 4-H program’s vision, mission, and values emphasize the importance of youth and adults working as partners to improve the group experience as well. A positive youth-adult partnership ensures that the essential elements (belonging, independence, mastery and generosity) are being practiced in 4-H programming.
