4-H is an international youth and volunteer organization. It’s a program that provides members with the resources and activities to build self-confidence, communication, and leadership skills while learning about a topic of their choice.
Each member picks a project and works with a volunteer leader to develop his/her skills related to the project of choice. In Manitoba there are over 60 interesting hands-on projects like beef, photography, outdoor living, machines, crafts and more!
Beyond projects there are also club activities, provincial events and travel opportunities where members can meet new people, build friendships and have fun!
Today, 4-H clubs in Manitoba are driven by thousands of 4-H members and volunteers, plus a strong partnership with Manitoba Agriculture.
The Let’s Speak Up! Contest encourages clubs to strengthen their public speaking skills at their club meetings without having to prepare a speech. Check out the 2018 4-H Manitoba Calendar to see the activities you can incorporate into your meetings. Be sure to take a photo of your members taking part and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the ballot.
