Service Learning | 4-H Project Resources & Curriculum
Service Learning Objectives: In the 4-H pledge, members state that they will strive to use their head, heart, hands, and health to improve their club, community, country, and world. Community service projects are meant to demonstrate leadership, strengthen local 4-H units in leadership responsibility and encourage other youth to effect change on important community issues. Service learning is different from community service in it's focus on the practical skills and abilities learned by youth in a project.
