4-H members and volunteers have the opportunity to take part in activities at the local, area, provincial, and national level.
Local 4-H Clubs
4-H Clubs organize local activities, including social, fundraising and community events. They select officers and hold regular meetings throughout the year. To start a new club, all you need is at least two families and one adult volunteer. For more information, contact a 4-H leader in your community or the Manitoba 4-H Council at 204-726-6136 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are ten Area Councils in Manitoba. Clubs send representatives who hold elections to form a governance body for the Area. They organize and host area-wide events, provide gold watch and scholarship awards, and member and leader development opportunities. They also send representatives to Manitoba 4-H Council.
