More about L3
The Listen, Learn, Lead (L3) project was initiated by Danika Gordon, with guidance from South Dakota State University Extension Regional 4-H Youth Program Advisor Hilary Risner. Gordon, who is a freshman at South Dakota State University, is a ten-year 4-H member and a previous State 4-H Ambassador. Throughout her 4-H experiences, Gordon has strived to share positive messages about being caring, respectful, fair, responsible, trustworthy and a good citizen with others. She has authored three books for elementary students with a focus on kindness and dreaming big. Gordon hopes the L3 series will create new opportunities for more youth to hear meaningful messages and ideas - and in turn, prompt thoughtful conversations and actions among youth for the future.
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.
