LISTEN: Local 4-H members talk National 4-H Month

Pictured above (from left): Area 4-H Students Natasha Hightower, Keylee Harris, and Daniel Latus visited with White River Now about October as National 4H Month.

October is National 4-H Month. 4-H is designed to prepare young people to step up to the challenges in their communities and provide youth with the skills to lead for a lifetime, according to the University of Arkansas System’s Division of Agriculture – Cooperative Extension Service, which conducts the program in the state. 

The four Hs are: Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. According to the U of A, the core elements of 4-H include youth leadership, youth-adult partnerships, life skills learning, and community service. 4‑H programs are grounded in the belief that youth learn best by doing. 4-H members complete hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture, and citizenship in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles.

Area 4-H Students Natasha Hightower, Keylee Harris, and Daniel Latus recently visited with White River Now about National 4H Month.

Listen below to their conversation with White River Now’s Chad Whiteaker.
