    Our Vision: The University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H envisions a future in which, as a direct result of its educational programs, the people of Maine will:
    - see themselves as citizens of a nation and a planet where human culture is related to the protection of national resources, and act as stewards to sustain them;
    - direct and adapt to change to improve their lives;
    - make decisions about their lives and the resources at their disposal to improve health, economic well-being and satisfaction;
    - know where to find reliable information and how to use it in solving the problems they face, individually and collectively, through voluntary action;
    - recognize their relationships to one another and act in ways that honor and respect all people;
    - direct public policy through active participation in identifying problems, selecting among alternative solutions and setting priorities;
    - understand the inter-relationship of issues facing communities and the state and their individual actions.
