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 188,000 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 council representative from each county with an active county council program. The State Executive Committee includes District Officers, State Council Officers, State Council Coordinator, and the State 4-H Leader or his/her designee.
