WHAT IS 4-H?
4-H is an international youth and volunteer organization. It's a program that provides members with the resources and activities to build self-confidence, communication, and leadership skills while learning about a topic of their choice.  Each member picks a project and works with a volunteer leader to develop their skills related to the project of choice. In Manitoba there are over 60 interesting hands-on projects like beef, photography, outdoor living, machines, crafts and more! Beyond projects there are also club activities, provincial events and travel opportunities where members can meet new people, build friendships and have fun! Today, 4-H clubs in Manitoba are driven by thousands of 4-H members and volunteers, plus a strong partnership with Manitoba Agriculture.

WHO CAN BE A MEMBER?
4-H members are youth and young adults between the ages of 6 and 25. Potential members must meet these age requirements by January 1 of the current 4-H club year.

WHAT DO 4-HER'S DO?
The 4-H motto is Learn To Do By Doing
Members can choose from more than 60 interesting hands-on projects like beef, photography, outdoor living, machines, crafts and more! Members will work with a volunteer leader to complete their project activities and develop the essential skills related to the topic. Each member may enter a speech competition during his/her 4-H year and some will advance to the Provincial Communications Extravaganza. This opportunity to write and read a speech helps develop communication skills and confidence. Members may also sit on the club executive. This provides them the opportunity to develop interpersonal and meeting management skills. Other 4-H activities include attending club or provincial events where members can make friends and have fun! In addition, some members will have the chance to attend 4-H meetings across the province, the country & the world, or to apply for travel opportunities and scholarships. In 4-H you Learn To Do By Doing and you learn skills that will help you achieve success throughout your life!

WHAT ARE 4-H LEADERS?
4-H leaders are adult volunteers who have been screened through our Youth Protection Program (YPP). There are two types of 4-H leaders' Head Leaders and Project Leaders. Head Leaders serve as the primary contact for the 4-H club. They support club members, project leaders and parents, complete registration and administrative tasks for the club, and may also be Project Leaders. Project Leaders arrange project meeting dates and locations, provide information to members, help members learn project skills, and encourage members to take part in 4-H club activities.

 

FIND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IN 4-H!

HELP YOUR KIDS BE GREAT
4-H provides a strong foundation of leadership and skill development to help your kids succeed in everything that they do. Nudging kids out of their comfort zones by encouraging them to try and practice new things in a safe, low-pressure environment, builds confidence.

PUBLIC SPEAKING
Kids who have a chance to polish their communications' skills make confident and passionate leaders. Your children will thank you when they excel in school and workplace presentations or at a future job interview.

BELONG TO A GROUP
A sense of belonging builds self-worth within a child. 4-H is an organization to which kids can belong without tryouts or auditions, and feel valued by their fellow members and leaders of all ages.

TECHNICAL SKILLS
4-H'ers learn a variety of skills in a self-directed learning environment. Projects such as cooking, photography, sewing, woodworking, outdoor living and animals lead to hobbies, unique life experiences and a varied skill set.

RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF-GOVERNANCE
Parents are welcome in all aspects of 4-H but it's the kids who make decisions for the club. They run meetings, vote on motions, plan events and lead the group. 4-H'ers learn the importance of completing a task, taking responsibility for their decisions and dealing with problems head-on. It sets them up to run the farm, a business, or even the country!

COMMUNITY SERVICE
4-H'ers make the world a better place. Kids who learn about community service at a young age are more likely to continue to contribute as adults.

FAMILY TIME
Life is busy. 4-H gives your family the opportunity to interact in a positive way to achieve a common goal. While your kids are having fun at club activities, you can spend time with them by providing guidance or leading a project.

BE PART OF A TEAM
Do projects with your friends and work together to make a difference in your community!

BE THE BOSS
In 4-H, you're in charge of your own destiny and help shape your club. You can run meetings, vote to decide club activities, keep track of the club's money, or plan club parties. Maybe you*ll even become Club President!

FUN STUFF
4-H'ers like to make things fun! When you're surrounded by cool people working together, whatever you're doing will be a good time!
