Guam 4-H Youth Development Program
I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, and my health to better living for my club, my community, my country, and my world.
4-H programs are delivered through the Cooperative Extension function of more than 100 land-grant universities across the nation. The programs are collectively working toward a common mission of assisting youth in acquiring knowledge, developing skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.
Th 4-H mission is carried out through the involvement of parents, volunteer leaders, and other adults who organize and conduct educational subject/project experiences in community and family settings. These hands-on, learn-by-doing experiences are supported by research and extension functions represented by the land-grant universities, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and cooperating local governments with support from the National 4-H Council and other private support.
The Guam 4-H Youth Development Program encompasses school, village, and community clubs. Assisted by the 4-H team from UOG Cooperative Extension & Outreach, the 4-H clubs are led by teacher, parent, and volunteer mentors. Youth participants engage in learning experiences related to STEM, citizenship, and health as well as a broad range of other subjects of interest, including, but not limited to, the following.
This program provides youth with an opportunity to be responsible members in the community, to contribute to shaping the world around them, and to provide service to others. Through this program, youth learn to explore relationships with peers, their families, their island, and the world.
Children, like adults, sometimes make bad decisions for their health. They may skip breakfast, drink soda all day, not get enough sleep, and other habits. Additionally, some youth damage their health by using tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs. The 4-H Health Program offers youth a basic understanding of keeping themselves healthy.
This program gives a brief history of the different handicrafts throughout the Pacific and the western world. Different materials and mediums are utilized to inspire youth's creativity and imagination through arts and crafts.
Children ages 6 to 14 years old can take part in several fun learning opportunities over their 2022 Christmas break with the 4-H Youth Enrichment Programs being offered by the University of Guam’s Cooperative Extension & Outreach service.
The half-day, week-long enrichment camps will engage youth in hands-on activities in cooking, arts and crafts, and science.
