Rhode Island 4-H

Cooperative Extension, College of the Environment and Life Sciences

Leadership and Life Skills


“Since its inception, 4-H has placed emphasis on the importance of young people being engaged, well-informed citizens.  By connecting to their communities and leaders, youth understand their role in civic affairs and are able to expand their role in decision-making processes.  It’s clear that civic engagement provides the foundation that helps youth understand the big picture of life and learn the skill sets that will allow them to become wise leaders for the 21st century.



Multiple 4-H leadership opportunities and training are planned for this year. Workshops will emphasize both on leadership and personal development. Resume writing, working with younger 4-H members as mentors, parliamentary procedure are some of the examples of educational topics.
