4-H plays a key role in positive youth development. An in-depth University study compared youth involved in 4-H with other youth. The study discovered that young people involved in 4-H have higher educational achievement and motivation for future education and are more civically active, making more contributions to their communities.
The 4-H banner hangs above the front door at the Pike County Administration building to honor National 4-H Week, celebrated annually to recognize the valuable role 4-H plays in shaping today's youth into tomorrow's leaders.

The Pike County 4-H youth development program is looking to the community to help expand its scope. 4-H relies on adults to guide 4-H members as they work on projects and participate in activities. The leader helps the members reach their potential. No special skills are required to be a 4-H adult leader. Leaders are supported by Penn State Extension with training, guidance and curriculum. All that is really required is a genuine interest in youth.
