The Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults.

The goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program are to:

1. Provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades K-13 (one year out of high school).
2. Encourage responsibility, community awareness and character development in youth.
3. Strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training.
4. Improve community partnerships and collaborations.
