Biographical or historical data
The foundations of 4-H began around the start of the twentieth century. The focal point of 4-H has been the idea of practical and hands-on learning, which came from the desire to make public school education more connected to rural life. Early programs tied both public and private resources together to benefit rural youth. The program provides learning experiences where young people partner with adults and volunteers. The goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, and life skills of youth through mostly experiential learning programs. Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H today focuses on citizenship, healthy living, science, engineering, and technology programs. In Virginia, 4-H is a program of the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
