Health

4-H believes that establishing healthy living habits at a young age is key to life-long health. We strive to equip young people with the knowledge and skills to address their own physical, emotional, mental, and social health in an ever-changing world. Kentucky 4-H equips young people with these skills through educational programming in physical health, mental health, nutrition, personal safety, diversity and inclusion, and addiction prevention.

4-H Health curricula will work in urban, suburban and rural communities – Health is an issue for everyone regardless of location or socio-economic status.  These research-based, ready-to-use curricula set 4-H Health apart and helps young people to achieve social, emotional, physical, mental and academic success.  Each curriculum provides youth with valuable skills such as leadership, teamwork, decision-making, civic responsibility and critical thinking.
