What is 4-H

We're 4-H Saskatchewan! For almost 100 years, we have given young people with a dream or interest (anything from photography to community gardens) the opportunity to sit down with someone who can show them how to do it. It is a time-tested learning process we call "learn to do by doing."

The 4-H program helps young people discover where they shine by letting them explore what they love, discover what they don’t and try new things until they become a natural! At each club meeting, youth are encouraged to dissect, rebuild, brainstorm, celebrate, debate, retool, experiment, dream, chill, think and, best of all, find their "thing." Using their hands to perfect a craft, their heart to reach out to other people, their head to learn and strategize, and spending every healthy day making a difference in the world. Whether they want to rebuild an old car, learn to make digital films, or have an outdoor adventure – that is what our program is about, making choices and meeting others who share similar passions. The program targets youth ages 6 and 25, as well as adults to lead the program, making it a great family based activity that involves the entire community. Our membership fee for members is $90. 

Fun and Friends 

Hanging out with friends and participating in fun activities is what 4-H is all about. Build life long friendships with people from all over the province, and develop valuable life skills while you’re at it. The program incorporates meetings, project groups, individual project work and special activities so you can have fun while working and learning together. Expand your skills through 4-H, and imagine where they may take you.

Personal Development 

4-H involves 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 

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. Skills learned through 4-H help youth become better members of their families, communities and our country.

Informal Education 

4-H is Canada’s largest out-of-school education program. The 4-H classroom takes place around your kitchen table, outdoors or within your community and is a world of hands-on projects and demonstrations, leadership development and personal economics. 4-H teaches pride in workmanship and accomplishments, personal interaction with peers and respect for the environment.With more than 200 clubs already established in Saskatchewan and the ability for anyone to start up their own club, 4-H is available virtually everywhere.
