Made In Broward, 4-H and The Flagler Village Monarchs


4-H is America’s largest youth development organization—empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. with the skills to lead for a lifetime. It’s a research-based experience that includes a mentor, a hands-on project, and a meaningful leadership opportunity.

Just as a plan is necessary in building a house, so is a plan—a set of ideals —necessary in the building of a well-managed life. In 4-H Club work the successful local club leader is one who inculcates constructive ideals with every attempt in an organized group effort. Life’s decisions spring largely from one’s attitudes. Desirable attitudes can be developed in the young person only by providing situations to which he or she may be trained to react in a constructive way. 4-H Club work provides these situations.

At Made In Broward, we sponsor the Flagler Village Monarchs 4-H Club, the Broward 4-H Association, and the Florida 4-H Foundation.

Our club sponsorship takes the form of 4-H program leadership and providing the space, materials, and instruction for members to work on their own projects and prepare for competitions.

Our county 4-H sponsorship takes the form of funding the 4-H Community Fair, staged every year in March at the African American Research Library and assisting other club members with clothing and textile projects.

Our Florida 4-H Foundation sponsorship consists of participation at the board level, advocating for changes to 4-H that will increase the reach to all youth regardless of their financial situation, and funding for competitions that could lead to the state level.  

Made in Broward sponsors 4-H because of its 100-year track record of training youth to develop producer mindsets; healthy, independent thinkers and masterful, contributing fellow citizens ready to take their rightful place in the world. 

When we support local 4-H producers, we contribute to a healthier, more prosperous and inclusive Broward.
