Brunswick County 4-H

The Brunswick County 4-H Youth Development Program is an educational program of the Cooperative Extension Service for boys and girls ages 5-19. In addition to providing excellent opportunities to young people, the 4-H program is also structured to allow adults an opportunity to share leadership skills and to learn and develop additional skills.

In addition, there are in-school and after-school enrichment programs provided through 4-H in all Brunswick County Schools, and Communities in Schools Programs.  Including Embryology in the Classroom for 2nd Grade Students, CalciYUM for Kindergartners, Life on the Farm for 3rd Graders.  TiLT youth volunteers teach after school enrichment promoting healthy lifestyles, science, and much more.

4-H Pledge

The 4-H pledge is used in every meeting. This is the pledge and what you do when you say the pledge:

I pledge my head to clearer thinking, (raise your right hand to the side of your head)
my heart to greater loyalty, (put your right hand over the left side of your chest)
my hands to larger service, (stretch out your hands in front of you, palms upward)
and my health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world. (stand with your hands at your sides)

4-H Motto

The 4-H motto, “To Make the Best Better,” should be the aim of every 4-H member and club leader.

4-H Colors

The 4-H colors are green and white. White symbolizes purity, and green represents life, springtime, and youth.
