Why We Exist
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.
