About 4-H

4-H is one of Prince Edward Island's longest running youth organizations for young people, aged 9 to 21. 

PEI 4-H is a family-oriented, community-based, youth organization which provides opportunities for leadership and life skills while promoting agriculture awarness.

PEI has over 550 members who belong to one of 23 clubs.  Members enroll in projects, give back to the community, make new friends and have lots of fun.

The Benefits

Socialize. Hanging out with other members who quickly become friends and participating in fun activities is what 4-H is all about. The program incorporates meetings, project groups, individual project work, and special activities so you can have fun while working and learning together. Enjoy the thrills, while developing your skills through 4 H, and just imagine where they may take you.

Personal Development. 4-H members like to DO and we've watched how hands-on learning change people's lives. 4-Hers excel in the areas of leadership and teamwork, members and leaders sharing, learning, growing and becoming the best they can be. Through real-life situations, 4-H helps youth develop life skills such as: communication, citizenship, decision-making, leadership, interpersonal relations and community and global awareness. Youth learn these practical skills through many different projects and programming activities.

Family and Community. Families are busy; work, school, hockey, music lessons, and more are all vying for your limited time resources. When everyone in today’s world is busy and over extended, it just makes good sense to belong to an organization that involves the entire family and brings you closer to your neighbours.

Informal Education
. 4-H is Canada’s largest out-of-school education program. The 4-H classroom takes place around your kitchen table, outdoors, computer screen, or within your community, province and beyond. It is a world of hands-on projects and demonstrations, and skill and leadership development. 4-H teaches pride in workmanship.

Projects. 4-H offers more than 50 exciting and challenging projects with the guidance of volunteer leaders including photography, canine, livestock, crafts, computers, cooking, outdoor exploration, just to name a few. Members can even create their own 4-H project.

And Much More
Lots of fun at club, district and provincial levels like curling, bowling, swimming, fun days, camping and conferences. There is also fantastic opportunity for out of province travel, international trips and exchanges, leadership and other conferences, scholarship programs and much more!
