4-H Positive Youth Development and Prevention

4-H Ambassadors Attend Healthy Living Summit in DC. Teens who are interested in becoming Health and Wellness Ambassadors click here.

Spending time with caring adults and engaging in activities that promote health and wellness are the bedrock of 4-H youth development programs across the country and the state.  The essential elements of 4-H include building a sense of belonging, independence, generosity and mastery for youth ages 5-19 by adult mentors. By focusing on these essential elements and 8 aspects of wellness: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, environmental, spiritual, occupational and financial, this site offers a wholistic and evolving approach to positive youth development and prevention of youth engaging in risky behaviors, choosing to live a wellness lifestyle and being role models in their communities.

Plogging

Plogging for a Purpose: Protecting the environment, promoting wellness, and preventing risky behaviors. 

Want to help the environment while improving your physical wellness? Join Delaware 4-H in plogging, an activity that combines jogging and picking up litter. Throughout the year, we are hosting multiple plogging campaigns, where you can pick up litter while jogging/walking in your local neighborhoods and parks. This initiative raises awareness of recovery while improving environmental, physical, emotional, and social wellness for all. Go plogging whenever you would like, or look out for one of our specified campaigns throughout the year.
