About Us

 

 The 4-H program is a voluntary, non-formal, educational program offered to all boys and girls ages 5-18 years old. Young    people in 4-H learn about citizenship, leadership, cooking, arts & crafts, mechanics & technology, horticulture, agriculture, and other subjects.  A 4-H project is a practical, but challenging, planned course of activity on a specific subject. Projects involve setting goals and evaluating progress. The skills and knowledge learned in 4-H project work help members become more productive individuals and citizens.

Engaging Youth...

 4-H emphasizes enrichment education through inquiry based learning. Youth are encouraged to discover their passions, adopt a growth mindset, practice self-reflection and set goals. 4-H projects and programs are focused around the core content of citizenship, healthy living, science, engineering and technology.


Mesa Goathill Go-getters 4-H club (MGG 4-H) is a tax exempt youth organization with the mission of “engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development”. MGG 4-H has enjoyed a significant growth in primary members (5-8 years old) within the last years. Last year, MGG 4-H launched new programs, including Computers and Digital Photography, Public Speaking and other programs to provide free activities for children located in the County of Orange. Our primary members participated in Orange County Youth Expo and submitted over 40 entries to show their hard work. Our volunteers doubled in an effort to effectively administer our new programs as well as keep pace with our organization's growing administrative responsibilities to provide service to children from Costa Mesa and neighboring cities in Orange County.

We conducted many community service activities this year in order to “Make the Best Better”. We packed 50 boxes for Operation Christmas Child and our club dedicated 32 hours of packing at the warehouse. We volunteered to decorate a float at the Rose Parade - about 80 volunteer hours. We wrapped gifts for customers at Barnes and Noble - about 36 volunteer hours. We made cards for children of military families. We made 16 yarn dolls to go in Bedside Boxes for patients at CHOC hospital. We collected 16 CD's for Radio Lollipop at CHOC hospital. We collected $257 and made about 20 fleece hats for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to go to children with leukemia who are undergoing chemotherapy. We decorated 28 pillowcases for the Ronald MacDonald House.
