4-H Canada 4-H Canada empowers young Canadians to become skilled, engaged, and responsible leaders who are passionate about making meaningful contributions to the world around them. We provide a safe, fun, and inclusive environment that prepares youth to make a positive impact on their community, on their country, and around the world. Established in 1913, 4-H is one of Canada’s longest-running and most respected youth organizations! We are a youthserving organization focused on the goal of helping young Canadians “Learn To Do By Doing” in a safe, inclusive, and fun environment. We believe in nurturing responsible, engaged, and confident leaders who are committed to positively impacting communities across Canada and around the world. 4-H Canada is made up of over 25,000 members and 7,700 volunteers across the country. Our volunteers are actually called leaders—and for good reason. We are an organization built around leadership. By providing 4-H’ers with mentors and role models who lead by example, we give youth the opportunity to enjoy meaningful, positive experiences that build confidence, positive self-identity, self-esteem and a sense of achievement.

4-H Pledge A pledge is a promise. In 4-H, we commit to our pledge and start every club meeting with it as a reminder of what we hope to achieve within 4-H and beyond!

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.

4-H Motto Learn To Do By Doing Learning through experience is a key objective of 4-H. At all levels of 4-H, members are encouraged to learn through active participation.
