I pledge:

my Head to clearer thinking,

my Heart to greater loyalty,

my Hands to larger service, and

my Health to better club, my community, better living.

For my club, my community, my country, and my World.


Sanderson 4-H kids begin every meeting with these words. The pledge tells what 4-H is all about 4-H has as its goal the four-fold development of youth: Head, Heart, Hands and Health. The saying of the pledge has prominent place in 4-H activities at regular 4-H meetings, achievement days, and other club events.


4-H Mission

4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults


4-H Vision

A world in which youth and adults learn, grow and work together as catalysts for positive change.


The 4-H Emblem, Colors, and the four H's

The original symbol of the Boys and Girls Clubs was a three-leaf clover with the words Head, Heart and Hands. Early in 1911, a meeting of club leaders in Washington adopted a committee recommendation approving the present 4-H emblem design.


Motto: To Make the Best Better

The motto was adopted at about the same time as the 4-H Club Pledge. Its intent is to inspire young people to continue to learn and grow, to make their best efforts better through participating in educational experiences .


"Learning by Doing"

This phrase sums up the educational philosophy of the 4-H program. Young people learn best when they are involved in their learning. The intent is to do, reflect and apply.
