4‑H has been an integral part of Alberta communities since 1917, with deep-rooted history and tradition that stems back to the efforts of individuals that formed the very first club for boys and girls (later called 4‑H) in our province.
Each decade since our beginning has brought with it new challenges and milestones. The new vision and mission for 4-H honors the history of 4-H while transforming the future as we to strive to be Alberta’s premier youth organization.
The 4-H Motto . . .
“Learn to do by doing”
Learning through experience is a key objective of 4-H. At all levels of 4-H, members are encouraged to learn through active participation.
4-H Alberta inspires, educates, and develops members who are outstanding rural and urban youth, leaders, and engaged citizens. Members learn to do by doing dynamic projects, programs and community service. In honoring our rural roots, we continue to recognize the importance of food and agriculture in Alberta.
Childhood passes in the blink of an eye. At 4-H we believe in making each second of it count; that is why we have over 15 programs designed to create unforgettable memories while developing skills and personal characteristics that last a lifetime!
4-H programs focus on developing self-confidence, teamwork, interpersonal and leadership skills. Whether it is a summer camp built around having a blast in the great outdoors, a program that helps youth take ownership of their choices and their future, or a combination of the two that allows them to find their own entrepreneurial spirit and take pride in their achievements, 4-H programs provide the meaningful experiences every child deserves.
It will be awesome. We guarantee it.
