Description & Services
Information 100 years in the making! 
Did you know that 4-H has been around for over 100 years? That’s right! 100 years. 2013 marked 100 years of 4-H in Canada. 
There are close to 2,400 members, 900 leaders and 100 clubs in Nova Scotia. More than 80 countries worldwide have 4-H clubs. 4-H is an organization dedicated to young people. 
The purpose of the 4-H program is to prepare girls and boys for their future as adult citizens. 4-H stands for head, heart, hands and health. The 4-H pledge describes the significance of the four H’s: 
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 and My Country. 
The philosophy of the 4-H program is explained by the 4-H motto: 
Learn to do by Doing. 
As a Nova Scotia 4-H’er, you can have the feeling of accomplishment that comes from trying and succeeding at something new – whether it’s fixing a small engine, knitting a sweater, training an animal or presenting a speech or demonstration to an audience. 
4-H offers all kinds of opportunities for 4-H members. Opportunities include various provincial and regional programs that members can attend to visit new places and make new friends! Senior 4-H members can also apply for scholarships and earn a personal development credit for Grade 10. 
The Root of it all 
The heart of 4-H is in its Clubs. 4-H Clubs are comprised of a 4-H Members and trained and screened Volunteers who act as Club Leaders. The Club decides on a topic of interest and through instruction by Leaders, and hands-on learning, Members learn about the topic during 4-H meetings. In addition to gaining a hands-on education, Members develop leadership skills, they gain an understanding of how an individual can affect their community and country, and they make lasting friendships. 
To supplement learning that occurs at the Club level, 4-H provides provincial and national opportunities to enable Members to further expand their knowledge and horizons. Various camps, conferences and exchanges are available for 4-H Members and young 4-H Alumni to participate in.
