For over 100 years, 4-H Alberta has understood that young people want to be involved, valued, and heard. It makes this organization a great place for young people to get engaged, learn, and grow; we are incredibly proud of the positive impact our programs have on our members as well as on Alberta’s communities.
By following the 4-H motto “Learn to do by Doing”, we are teaching leadership, communication, technical, and life skills. We foster our youth to become independent thinkers, future leaders, and outstanding citizens.
Since our early days, we have expanded on our traditional 4-H programs. We are proud of our beef, dairy, and sheep projects – these are the programs that have anchored us in the agriculture communities and that have elevated this impactful youth organization.
Over time, we recognized that youth programs must evolve to align with the times and the needs of our ever changing society and environment. Thus, we created – and continue to create – a wide range of popular, non-livestock related projects: Field Crops, Engineering, Foods, Entrepreneurship, Sustainable Living, Health & Fitness, and Visual Arts just to name a few.
4-H Alberta is recognized as the premier youth leadership organization in Alberta. Working together in a vibrant, thriving environment, we’re connecting people, ideas, and communities for a lifetime of benefit.
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.
