Description & Services
Information  
 
In 4-H, there is so much to experience, so much to learn, and so much to do. Build a website, learn how to take great photographs, care for animals, be a world-class scrapbooker. If you can think of it, there is probably a 4-H Club in Canada that is doing it. 
 
So you’re probably wondering what the four “H”s in 4-H stand for? Well, in 4-H, we pledge our Head, Heart, Hands and Health to our club, community and our country. Best of all, we do it by having fun!  
 
What is 4-H? 
 
4-H is one of Canada’s longest-running youth organizations for young people between the ages of 8 and 21. 
 
We’ve been around a long time, almost 100 years. Since 1913, 4-H has given youth opportunities to learn new things through a dedicated group of volunteer leaders. 4-H youth learn the skills needed to contribute to making this a better world. Many of them go on to become leaders in their communities. 
The Benefits 
 
So what’s in it for you? First off, there are so many projects you can choose from. Make new friends. See a world outside your own doors. 
 
Locally, 4-H gives back to the community and creates community leaders. Provincially, there are opportunities for conferences, camps and scholarships. And nationally, 4-H members have the opportunity to see different parts of Canada and the world, apply for scholarships, and participate in some of the country’s longest-running youth conferences.
