What is 4-H?
4-H is one of Canada’s longest-running youth organizations for young people between the ages of 8 and 21. Since 1913, 4-H has given youth opportunities to learn new things through a dedicated group of volunteer leaders. 4-H youth learn the skills needed to contribute to making this a better world. Many of them go onto become leaders in their communities.
4-H in the Area
The North Simcoe 4-H provides an opportunity for youth to develop skills and knowledge about a variety of topics. Projects range from various animal (beef, dairy, horse and goat) to life skills (cooking, sewing and crafts). The club members also choose their own projects.

The Benefits of 4-H
There are so many projects you can choose from. Make new friends. See a world outside your own doors. Locally, 4-H gives back to the community and creates community leaders. Provincially, there are opportunities for conferences, camps and scholarships. Nationally, 4-H members have the opportunity to see different parts of Canada and the world, apply for scholarships and participate in some of the country’s longest-running youth conferences.
