4-H Club: Activities, Pledges and Creeklife

The 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

That is a pretty impressive pledge. The 4-H Club is all about preparing youth to make a positive impact on their community, and the world. They envision this world as a place where youth and adults work together to create positive change in their communities. Creeklife wants to play a role by helping kids that need the funding available through fundraising.

The Club hosts programs in science, citizenship and healthy living, and each of the programs focuses on using service learning events to help drive the lessons home. 4-H’ers have a whole program called “There’s No New Water”, that fits right along with what Creeklife is all about! Here’s an overview from the 4-H Club Website

The 4H curriculum focuses on:


  • Exploration of the natural water cycle.

  • Exploration of human interventions that affect water quality and quantity.

  • Examination of the effects of the urban/rural interface on water quality and quantity.

  • Mapping watersheds.

  • Implementation of service learning projects that address local water conservation issues.

  • Culmination with a set of activities for younger youth and families designed to be led by teens as teacher.

 

Teachers, parents, teens and other leaders can use the Creeklife platform to implement the service learning projects for this lesson, either by creating their own project, or by claiming one that’s already been posted. 4-H’ers can also use this platform to fundraise for their cause!

4-H also has a whole section of curriculum that is devoted to teaching kids how to develop their own service learning projects. Yet again, Creeklife can be an invaluable tool for those youth who need a platform to build their projects on!

One of the major barriers to any service learning project is finding the volunteers, and the funds to make it all happen. That is where Creeklife comes in. Creeklife provides the perfect platform for leaders and youth alike to create or claim projects. It’s a service learning tool that has the fundraising and volunteer-raising aspects built right in. As 4-H’ers pledge to do good, Creeklife pledges to help!
