University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and AmeriCorps
The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. Georgia 4-H, part of the world's largest youth development organization, is preparing the citizens of tomorrow by building youth/adult partnerships, providing youth with service learning opportunities, and giving youth essential experiences. Our programs are offered to youth at minimum or no cost without regard for ethnicity, race, national origin, sex, religion, or ability. Georgia 4-H seeks VISTA members to help youth make their best better as they grow out of poverty and become tomorrow's leaders.
