4-H Youth Development Vision

A world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change.

4-H Youth Development Mission

4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults.

The Wailuku Roselani 4-H Club was first organized in September 1956 under the leadership of Clara Sodetani, Ann Arisumi, Kimiyo Takitani, and Mary Soon. The Wailuku Roselani 4-H program has produced over 100 State winners in various categories. These 4-Hers attended National 4-H Congress as representatives of the State of Hawaii. Since these early days, Wailuku Roselani 4-H clubs participated in various programs such as foods and nutrition, clothing and leadership. Today, club members build robots, work with GPS and GIS technology, and promote sustainability of Maui Nui. Among their activities are the annual Teach-In (demonstration day), Tech Connect (STEM activity day), 4-H Sunday, and various other community service projects.

4-H Pledge

I Pledge my Head to clearer thinking,
my Heart to greater loyalty,
my Hands to larger service,
and my Health to better living,
for my club, my community, my country, and my world.

4-H is one of the oldest and most effective programs of non-formal education in Hawaii. The 4-H classroom is a world of real hands-on projects and demonstrations, leadership development, and personal economics. 4-H teaches pride in workmanship and accomplishments, personal interaction with peers, and respect for the environment.
