4-H registration opens Oct. 1

Registration remains open until December 1, 2019

Registration for the 2019-2020 4-H Alberta club year opens October 1 and will remain open until December 1, 2019.

Leaders can register existing clubs and all their members and volunteer leaders online. Those looking to join a club, or who need help registering their club, or who want more information can call 780-422-4H4H (4444) to speak with a 4-H specialist.

“Building communities since 1917, 4-H Alberta has mentored rural Alberta youth in leadership, communication, entrepreneurship, community spirit and skill development. It has equipped them with confidence and life-applicable skills while providing a network of friends that spans the entire country,” says Cameron Horner, 4-H communications and marketing specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

Currently, there are approximately 330 4-H clubs in Alberta with close to 6,000 members and 2,000 volunteer leaders.

“With projects ranging from beef to photography, woodworking to horticulture, 4-H continues to provide members with life-long learning opportunities. That, along with inspirational regional and provincial programs, awards and scholarships, and travel opportunities and you can see why 4-H is the largest youth organization in the province.”

Go to the 4-H Alberta website to register and for more information.
