Charleston & Dorchester 4-H

4-H cloverTurning ideas into action, 4-H youth are becoming everyday heroes who persevere through challenges to leave lasting, positive impacts on their communities. Through the work of caring mentors, 4-H - a positive youth development organization - is cultivating a growing number of America's youth to lead us in a Revolution of Responsibility. Their commitment challenges us all to join the movement toward meaningful change.

4-H Pledge: "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."

Mission: Use a learn-by-doing approach, involve caring adults, and utilize the knowledge and resources of Clemson University and the land grant university system to empower youth to become healthy, productive, and contributing members of society.

Motto: "To Make the Best Better"

***Office Update*** 4-H Agent Jennifer Scales' last day will be July 4th, 2019. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during our transition to a new 4-H agent in our area. Stay tuned for contact and program updates later this summer.

"It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve you all as your 4-H agent over these past few years. Leaving was not an easy decision, but our family is relocating to the West Coast. I wish you all the best as you continue on your 4-H journey!"  - Jenn Scales
