Phillips Rooks District


4-H is a community of young people across Kansas engaged in learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Caring adults who support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential. Adults can share guidance, knowledge and wisdom, as well as model respect and provide skills training.

4-H is a nationwide program. Each of the four H's of the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop.

  • Head, critical thinking, problem solving; 
  • Heart, self-discipline, integrity, communication;
  • Hands, serving others; and
  • Health, choosing healthy lifestyles

From hands-on exploration to project-based skill building, young people thrive through 4-H participation, finding their way to success in life and career.
