4-H ECCS Prize Book

4-H IN ONTARIO
"LEARN TO DO BY DOING"

The primary purpose of 4-H is to promote the personal development of youth in rural Ontario.

The 4-H Club Program in Ontario is open to young people between the ages of 6 and 21 (before January 1st of the current year). 4-H Clubs are organized under a partnership of the Ontario 4-H Council and Local 4-H Associations. Under the guidance of volunteer leaders and local 4-H Associations, the members become actively involved in their club program and “Learn To Do By Doing”.

Local club activities are planned to suit the needs of the members in each community. Each member is required to carry out one or more projects related to the club in which they are enrolled. Projects involve such things as livestock, plant science, small animals, food preparation, nutrition and fitness to name only a few.

Parents, older club members and public minded citizens serve in a voluntary way as adult and youth leaders. Well planned club programs provide effective training and experience in technical knowledge, assuming responsibility, co-operation with others, conducting meetings, constructive recreation and program planning.

Character development, good citizenship and training in leadership, agriculture and life skills are important goals of the program. The 4-H Pledge reads...

"I Pledge...
My HEAD to clearer thinking,
My HEART to greater loyalty,
My HANDS to larger service,
My HEALTH to better living,
for my club,
my community,
my country
and my world”
