Grow True Leaders Campaign


What is the Grow True Leaders Campaign?

                With 53 million school age youth in the U.S today, it’s critical to note that 4-H and its peer organizations serve less than half. The Grow True Leaders Campaign gives us an unprecedented opportunity to reach more kids across the nation by employing three calls of action: Shout, Share, and Support. Through the use of the most utilized platform of this generation , social media, this campaign puts youth’s voices front and center, empowering them, and helping them to see their opinions and actions do matter. The campaign uses the months of April-June to shine a spotlight on how 4-H allows youth to lead in life and careers. By telling the 4-H story in a consistent and compelling way, we aim to build the 4-H and Cooperative extension brands and amplify the impact of the life-changing work we here at 4-H do every day. America is in dire need of leaders, through empowering youth leaders today, we help them to be the inspiration for the visionaries of tomorrow.
