4-H and NC State are dedicated to producing outstanding citizen leaders.
The relationship between the program and the University is unique: 4-H is the only youth organization whose operations are based at the land-grant university. 4-H thus serves as the first exposure many youth may have with the world of higher education.
Through 4-H programs, young people master skills to make career and life choices; connect with communities and learn to give back to others; mature in self-discipline and responsibility; learn to better understand themselves; become independent thinkers; and develop lifelong friendships and long-term relationships with caring adults.
The Department of 4-H Youth Development and Family & Consumer Sciences at NC State is uniquely positioned to respond to some of the most important issues facing North Carolinians today.
The mobile component to "NC State & 4-H: Leading Together" features images from the North Carolina State University Archives Photograph Collection held by the NCSU Libraries Special Collections Research Center (SCRC). Many of the featured photographic prints were digitized for "Green 'N' Growing: The History of Home Demonstration and 4-H Youth Development in North Carolina," a digital project that presents thousands of images and textual materials that document the history of 4-H and Home Demonstration in North Carolina from the 1900s to the 1970s.
The "4-H and NC State: Leading Together" exhibit was produced by Tania Allen and Lincoln Hancock with numerous contributions from 4-H alumni and staff at the Department of 4-H Youth Development and Family & Consumer Sciences at NC State.
The "4-H and NC State" mobile supplement is a product of the NCSU Libraries, collaboratively developed by staff in the Digital Library Initiatives and Special Collections Research Center departments, with design support from Lincoln Hancock and Tania Allen.
