4-H is a nation-wide family-oriented, community-based, positive youth development organization dedicated to the development of young Canadians, encouraging them to become responsible members of society. We help our youth “Learn To Do By Doing” in a safe, inclusive and fun environment, providing opportunities for leadership and life skills development, while promoting agriculture awareness.

The heart of 4-H is in its clubs. 4-H clubs are comprised of 4-H members and trained and screened volunteers who act as club and project leaders. The club decides on a topic of interest and, through instruction by leaders and hands-on learning, members learn about the topic during 4-H meetings. In addition to gaining a hands-on education, members develop leadership skills, they gain an understanding of how an individual can affect their community and country, and they make lasting friendships.
