4-Her's of the Month
A Revolution of Responsibility
for the next 100 Years
The California 4-H centennial marks our 100 years as an innovative, research-based youth development program. The centennial offers us the opportunity to celebrate our past and create our future. For 100 years, 4-H youth have brought information and innovation solutions to their families and communities that has served to strengthen agricultural technology and that tradition continues today.
For the next 100 years, 4-H youth will be the ones to solve our most complex societal challenges-such as obesity, poverty, depletion of natural resources, climate change, unemployment and food insecurity. 4-H youth will be the leaders for change-this is our Revolution of Responsibility!

by the University of California Cooperative Extension.
The purpose of 4-H Youth Development is to help diverse young people discover and develop their potential and grow into competent, contributing, and caring citizens.
