True Leaders in Service

True Leaders in Service logo

4-H is launching the annual True Leaders in Service initiative in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Month. True Leaders in Service, a month-long community service activation, will officially kick-off the first day of April, and culminate with the National 4-H Day of Service on Saturday, April 29.

Thousands of 4-H’ers will venture out into their communities throughout the month of April to do what 4-H’ers do best: lead in service to tackle community challenges and help meet the needs of others.

The first National 4-H Day of Service on April 29 will take place in every county across the country. 4-H members, adult volunteers and friends will help improve their communities by adopting a service project. These projects can be done as individuals, as an entire county 4-H program, or anything in between. No matter the project, this is a day that will make a difference!

Please register your project at 4-H.org/true-leaders-in-service
