About 4-H Ontario
Through 4-H Ontario, Members, youth aged 9–21, and Volunteer Leaders come together to create a 4-H Club and learn about a selected topic through hands on activities and mentorship. 4-H’rs look to the 4-H Motto and take a “Learn To Do By Doing” approach in all they do. Dedicated Volunteers work with Members to develop leadership and life skills that equip them with tools to reach their full potential and become conscious and contributing citizens. At 4-H we believe it is important to look at the big picture; youth need to see beyond themselves and focus on how their actions affect personal relationships, their community, the environment and society as a whole. 4-H in Ontario began in 1915 and has countless Alumni across Ontario who continue to contribute to their communities and country.
