4-H Grows True Leaders!
At 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. The Grow True Leaders Campaign will engage young people and rally the nation to provide more youth with hands-on experiences so they grow into true leaders.
Growing #TrueLeaders Nationwide
Every child has the potential to be a true leader. However, kids today say they are missing experiences that grow the life skills they need – like confidence, responsibility, independence and compassion. It is a serious problem now that will lead to a severe leadership void in the years to come – impacting communities across America, and nearly every industry and sector.
