PITTSBORO — Every year 4-H youth set goals and make plans on how to reach those goals by the end of the calendar year. Under the guidance of their 4-H leader, the youth evaluate how well their goals and accomplishments were met. Youth may also set new goals throughout the year so that they can continue to grow and develop their skills and personality.

To be successful the youth’s plan will require loyalty to their 4-H club, their county, state, nation, and world. Service to others is also very important. Creativity, responsibility, and leadership is also required. The satisfaction that youth feel for a job well done will make it all worthwhile.
