  • Promoting optimal nutrition and wellness across the life span.
  • Strengthening the well-being of individuals and families across the life span.
  • Using critical and creative thinking skills to address problems in diverse family, community, and work environments.
  • Ensuring security for the family’s financial needs.
  • Promoting and sustaining the 4-H youth organization.
