It is a Direct Support Organization to the University of Florida, with the sole purpose of supporting the statewide UF/IFAS Extension 4-H Youth Development Program. The responsibility for the 4-H Youth Development Program and authorization for use of the 4-H name and emblem within Florida rests with the Dean of Extension, State 4-H Program Leader, and designated Extension/4-H faculty members. State 4-H staff members also serve management functions of the Foundation to assist it in carrying out its day-to-day operations.
The UF/IFAS Extension 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. This mission is accomplished by creating safe and inclusive learning environments, involving caring adults, and utilizing the expertise and resources of the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system.
Research has shown that young people who participate in 4-H are more likely to make better grades in school, attend college, be physically active and become engaged citizens.
The Florida 4-H Hall of Fame was established in 2002 to recognize outstanding individuals who have made a contribution to the 4-H program. Established during the national 4-H program’s centennial year, one hundred members were inducted into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame’s members include outstanding 4-H alumni, volunteers, extension agents, program leaders, and supporters. Many tell us that being named to membership in the Hall of Fame is one of the most-treasured recognitions in their lives.
