State 4-H Council


Our mission is to share the diverse opportunities 4-H offers to help youth develop social responsibility, empower them to live an authentic life, and grow leaders who can make the best better, regardless of circumstances. Whether planning events, leading community service activities, serving as ambassadors for our organization, or creating a safe and welcoming environment for all, we aim to lead by example for the over 262,000 North Carolina 4-H youth members, thousands of adult volunteers, hundreds of 4-H professionals, and countless others who support 4-H.


The State 4-H Council consists of the State 4-H Council Officers, the District officers, and one representative from each county. The State Executive Committee includes District Officers, State 4-H Council Officers, State Council Coordinator, and the State 4-H Leader or his/her designee.

Be You

The 2020 – 2021 North Carolina State 4-H Theme is Be You. 4-H is a place where you can simply be yourself. You’re free to be funny, shy, outgoing, quiet, quirky, introverted, extroverted, . . . . 

Everyone has a place in 4-H. Your State 4-H Council challenges you to simply – Be You! Don’t be afraid to use your voice – it’s powerful. Celebrate your strengths, skills and talents. Stand up for what you believe. Don’t be afraid to Be You!
