Charting Program

Introduction

The West Virginia 4-H Charting program is an individual program of self-understanding. The materials you receive will challenge your thinking and make you consider your opinion on a wide variety of personal issues. We believe Charting is a yearlong process that may affect the way you live the rest of your life. It involves completion of the Charting materials, an interview with your extension agent or Charting instructor, and a group experience involving in-depth discussions with other Charters.

Charting History

4-H Charting in West Virginia has a proud heritage. W.H. "Teepi" Kendrick put the fourfold development of Head, Hands, Heart, and Health into the 4-H Charting book between 1916 and 1920. In the early days of Charting, a Charter who passed the tests and completed the work for one of the Hs, received a pin displaying only that H, according to A Touch of Charisma. Although the Charting program has changed much over the years, the goals have remained the same: to encourage 4-H'ers to see themselves as they are and to help them plan their personal goals.
