  • Healthy Living

Healthy living has been at the core of 4-H and remains a foundation of our pledge. Although 4-H believes that healthy living habits of young people begin in the context of their families and communities, we strive to equip youth with healthy living knowledge and skills that will prepare them physically, emotionally and socially to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

To meet the needs of today’s youth, 4-H Healthy Living programs seek to address national issues including nutrition and physical fitness, substance abuse, safety, and social and emotional wellness
