Everywhere in the world, 4-H is based on a “Learn To Do By Doing” philosophy. At its core, 4-H is a grassroots organization of leaders building leaders.
The four H’s stand for head, heart, hands and health. In Ontario, 4-H members aged 9–21 come together with volunteer leaders to create a 4-H club, where members learn about a selected topic through hands-on activities and mentorship. In the Cloverbud Program, youth aged 6–8 work with volunteer leaders on a variety of units,
giving them a 4-H experience over the course of a year.
4-H emphasizes the importance of looking at the big picture; encouraging youth to see beyond themselves and focus on how their actions affect their relationships, their community, the environment and society as a whole.
This is reflected in the 4-H pledge, said at the beginning of every 4-H meeting and event: “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.”
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.
