Registration for the 2019-20 4-H Alberta club year is now open until Dec. 1.
Leaders can register existing clubs and all their members and volunteer leaders online at 4h.ab.ca. Those looking to join a club, needing help to register their club, or wanting more information can call 780-422-4H4H (4444) to speak with a 4-H specialist.
“Building communities since 1917, 4-H Alberta has mentored rural Alberta youth in leadership, communication, entrepreneurship, community spirit and skill development,” said Cameron Horner, 4-H communications and marketing specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.
“It has equipped them with confidence and life-applicable skills while providing a network of friends that spans the entire country.”
Currently, there are about 330 4-H clubs in Alberta with close to 6,000 members and 2,000 volunteer leaders.
“With projects ranging from beef to photography, woodworking to horticulture, 4-H continues to provide members with lifelong learning opportunities,” said Horner. “That, along with inspirational regional and provincial programs, awards and scholarships, and travel opportunities and you can see why 4-H is the largest youth organization in the province.”
